Hello all! Attached is a pic of a set of stairs that a client is interested in doing in their new home. You see how the back of the stairs has a vertical riser as well? Is there a way to create this in Chief Architect? The only way I can think of is doing is with individual landings stacked on top of each other. Thanks in advance for all the help!

If you want separate tread / riser material like in your picture, then you will need to use landings. If you're ok with 1 material, then it can be done by using no stringers, tread overhang of about 18", and tread thickness equal to the unit rise. That would get you pretty close.

I would use landings, countertops (can have moldings attached to them), soffits (can have moldings attached to them) or just moldings by themselves, depending on the detail required, but if you want simple you could just use the stairs tool.

Thanks everybody for your help!! I really appreciate it. I went with the option of using individual landings. It renders well enough for the client to visualize it in their new home. Thanks again!!
