A couple things...

 

1.   You can select that room you created above the stairs and make the room type "Open Below" and your stairs will show up.  If all you're producing is floor plans, that might be enough, HOWEVER...

2.   Bigger issue is that your stairs don't actually work as you've drawn them up.  Take a section view midway through your stairs and parallel with them and you'll see what I'm talking about.  They just need to be adjusted and then you don't need that manually created room on the main floor necessarily, the auto stairwell tool would do the trick.

Thanks for the help Alskan_Son. Yes I know about the stairs. Said existing and only 9'6" long. Something wrong with that. I went on and made it longer like it is surpose to be and sent to client in Tenn. Hall I was doing was floor plan design, power, electrical, and interior elevations. stair and hull of bldg existing.

The problem is that the 9'6" stairs would not reach the floor above.  By opening the stair dbx you can edit the treads & risers so that it will reach (not a legal stair but it would make the "stairwell" tool work).  Chief just needs the stair to reach the floor above in order to cut out a stairwell.

      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,

      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.

      I am stuck on this one. I have a railing at the top of the stairs that I can't seem to get rid of. When I delete it the stair opening disappears. When i re-add the stair opening the railing across the top comes back.
