Staircase Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am designing a two story home.  I want the staircase to go up halfway, have a small landing and then go up the rest of the way to floor 2.  I'm having some issues.  First, it isn't showing up on my second floor as a staircase being present. Secondly, I want to make it an enclosed stairwell except for the half wall on one side on the first floor. It comes out like the pictures attached, hopefully someone can assist in fixing this issue.  Also, in one of the pics (small enclosed room) my staircase is showing though the wall, in what would be my half bathroom. how do i fix this??

you didn't hit the attach button for your pics , and attach your plan file too please , too much guessing from Pics and we need to know what software and year you are using so please fill in your Profile signature,too including that info , see mine , thx.

ps . close the plan in HD before you attach it or it wont attach.

Can't tell much from  your pics , but I am guessing you havn't used the Auto stairwell tool or made an open below room over the stairwell if it isn't showing up upstairs. The Auto tool only works once per stairwell , so if it doesn't work , you need to open the floor yourself.

Posting the plan file -- YourPlanName.plan (not an image of the plan) is many (most) times a good idea.

 

There are some really good videos on YouTube and there is the Knowledge Base with how to on many issues.

 

Even the Overview Video is worth watching.

Try sliding the wall you want open on the stairs, UNDER the stairs. That worked for me

Draw 2 stairs, add a landing and then click on a stair, then click the autostair well tool. It will make the "open below" room for you.

if you draw two staircases then click in the space between them HD will Auto add the Landing too  ( Pro feature ...don't know?)

Kbird,

 

In Suite you have to use the Landing tool to create a landing. Suite will not Auto create the landing..

Did you try it ?, I think this was in 2015 Suite Version , at least the Manual for Suite on page 240 says it should work , unless it is a Manual screw up , that wasn't corrected.?
