Porch stairs under roof

Recommended Posts

Using the stair tool I've been unsuccessful getting the roof to cover stairs. I am using a slab/stem wall foundation with a "floating deck" for the porch. I looked at webinar that manipulated slab to make stairs in pool and felt that was helpful getting me close to a solution, but can't seem to find a resolution. Any help would be great. I am using 2016 pro edition.

Posting images, or the plan file (make sure it's not open in the program), will get you better answers.

Create a bump out room, gable the side walls and then click on the front wall, click extend the slope downward. Make the walls invisable.

Thank you. Yes this scenario would be something I could work with and have struggled to accomplish...Would explain what I would need to do, to make the thumbnail you attached?

 

Thanks again!

I did, basically, what you did to form the bump out on the porch. 

 

Just turned off the floor by defining the room as Open Below. Draw in 3 Room Divider walls to enclose the steps. Make sure a room is created and you will get the roof.
