Stair Railings in a Doorway

Recommended Posts



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 have designed a pergola and a deck. I cannot get the terrian to show right. It needs to be zero of level at back of deck by pool deck and slowly slope down to a bayou. it needs to be 36" to grade at edge of outer deck Then a stair going down to the end of stair which is around 5 fr lower that top of deck. I have not did much terrian and would appreciate your help. This is just a remodeling and adding a deck from the pool. 
      Thank  you,

      Is there a way to make the top rail of my deck railing rounded?

      The living room offers a peek to the upstairs living area via the stairway. The glass panel railings and open concept design create a mechanism for the big windows on the first floor and the high shed windows on the 2nd floor to collaborate on the sharing of light and air between floors.
