Stair Railings in a Doorway

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm trying to draw some stairs where the railing dies into the side of a doorway opening.   In addition, I'd like a starter tread to extend through the doorway.   Trying to recreate something like in the attached picture (Entry Way.jpg), however what ends up happening is my stairs keep getting cut off (Capture.jpg).   I can make this work by leaving the wall open and framing in a doorway with soffit manually, but there has to be a better way.   I hope.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

If you construct the stairs as a symbol, you can do what you want.

 

In the attached pic, you can see a stool, which is of course a symbol, in an open doorway.

      I'm making an electrical plan and trying to figure out how to add my electrical line to my light fixture over the stairs - shown on the main floor. So I have a 2 way switch at the bottom and top of the stairs.

      I was messing around with my template wanting to get some more things in place for my stairs and defaults. I ran into this before and just moved on, but now I am drawing homes using Chief and need to find a way to angle or follow the stairs with a halfwall. Thank you

      1) Finished floor for this existing building is 36". The driveway in back is level with finish floor also. I cannot get the landscape all around to fill in under building and driveway. The drive slopes up to flat across as much as I have flat. The exist. H.C. ramp goes into a concrete porch. This is as-built plan and then I will design a restaurant on the first floor. 
      2) I cannot get u shaped stairs to work and land on the 2nd floor by the entry door.
       
      I would appreciate any help in accomplishing what i need to do.

      I have an octagonal shaped room (silo, 3 stories tall) and I need to build a stair case along the outer wall, following the shape of the octagon, with winders in the corners. What is the best way to go about doing this? I can't seem to figure out how to get the angles correct, the railings to work, get it to create winders on the corners, or get it tight to the wall.
