Stairs Thread...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, a while back there was a thread where someone came up with a work around on how to get the bottom section of stairs to cover a wall/have the railing die into the wall. I have no idea what I'm talking about here, It's been a long morning!!! I'll attach a photo. Anyways, I've searched this forum last night and a little today and can't seem to locate this thread. Any Ideas? I'm pretty sure I replied in that thread, but when I search for threads I replied in, it only gives me a few. I know I've replied in more than that. Hmm.

Open your stairs, set them to have winders.

 

Then go to the style section and set the Winder Max Tread Contraction to 5", or a little thicker than your wall.

 

Click ok, and drag your stairs to go to the outside of the wall, and it should draw correctly.

See this thread: https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/index.php?/topic/4657-stair-rail-on-top-of-wall/

there are other methods of handling this situation. Attached is a plan for an unusual existing stair that uses a 1/4" landing to locate the wider stair in relation to the narrow stair contained by the wall.

Stairs can be split by a landing, and have different characteristics for each section, allowing for creative solutions, the landings can be so small that they don't present problems with continuity.

Here are two stairs that don't actually join, but provide a continuous appearance.
