Room Under Stairs: How Do I Create A Partial Wall Surface To Cover Stairs?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to create a wall that covers the triangular area where the stairs are above the work bench? Everything I try either blocks off the work bench on the first floor or takes the place of the wall on the second floor.

You pretty much built your stairs, select Style> Open Underneath  and draw your wall or  put put cabinets under there or anything else you like. Also select stairs and in DBX under fill select None so you can place your items manually. Here is a sample with a bathroom under it.

 

I hope it helps.

make doorway with tudor arch settings as needed.

Or place a solid in an elevation to cover it up. Set materials.

You can also try to build a wall and in the wall DBX specify it as "no room definition". Put the wall roughly into position then reshape it as necessary in an elevation view.

I have a similar but different issue. i need the upper part of the stairs enclosed by exterior walls and the lower part open. (See photo and Plan file attached)

 

"Different topic but same plan"

 

I also am having issue getting my interior wall of my fireplace to show the correct surface on outside of house.

 

I'm sure all this is elementry but I am stuck.

 

Thanks in advance for your help,

 It's all starting to make sense but sometimes I miss it. Thanks for the help.

 

A couple more issues along the same lines.

 

1) Exterior siding on interior stairway wall.

 

2) Stair handrail wall not working correctly. (Siding on top of wall where Handrail should be.)

 

3) Green wall on Ground floor. (DBX don't make sense)

I'm getting this: I can't fix this for anything. I tried everything I can think of. The framing follows the stairs but the wall finish doesn't I tried to manually edit the wall using the handles but they snap back to original position. I am trying to get the wall to only show beneath the stairs.

How about starting a new thread, and attaching your plan.

Move that wall a little more under the stair, an inch at a time, it will auto build to what you need.

      Hi.
      I have a problem that I am hoping to get some feedback on Re: soffits. I believe to be a X11 issue.  In my plan, i created open rafters first on attic level with no finished ceiling, the soffits would "glow" with emission. I am a part of Chief Tutor.com so I sent .plan to him to get feedback.  He took the file, put the soffit rafters on the first level and it fixed the problem on his computer.  However, when i did what he instructed on my own software, the soffits would still glow in physically based render with "improve lighting quality" checked, and they are downright black when the improve lighting is not checked.  He informed me it was  likely an X11 issue because he was able to resolve in the newest version.  Is there a work around I can do for this?   I am contracted out through a small construction company and they may not be upgrading to new version; So a work around would be ideal.  Thank you.  See attached files for images of problem.

      We're trying to figure out how to change the angle of pendent lights on vaulted ceilings. When we create the ceiling angle, the lights follow and aren't angled properly. How do we change the lights so they go vertical rather than at a tilt?

      OK...I've been messing around with the "Tray Ceiling" tool in X12.  Cannot for the life of me figure out how to create a "nested" tray ceiling.  In the help file it shows to unique icons...one for a "tray"...and one for a "nested tray".  I cannot find where this "nested" tray menu or icon exists.  
       

       
      Is the nested ceiling shown below in Example B possible with the Nested Tray Ceiling tool?  Thanks!
