Covered entry with recessed stairs

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to recess my stairs into my front covered porch but I'm getting a small strip of subfloor under the wall where my steps start.  I used a wall with an arched doorway to create the arched entrance where my stairs start.  To create the area for the stairs I drew a room divide and called the space for the stairs as open to below.  Is there a setting I'm missing to help clean this up?

Probably. Open the doorway and see what you might not need.

I couldn't find any settings that cleaned it up but I tried dragging the bottom of the doorway below the stoop and that fixed it.   I have to turn the casing off but at least the subfloor is gone.

Try selecting the area in question and then check in 'Active Layer Display Options' to see what layer it's in. It would also be helpful if you post your plan.

Look at the image I posted above, and compare with yours. What's different, other than mine has no sill?
