Stairs not creating stairwell

Recommended Posts

I am trying to place a simple stairwell from the basement to the 1st floor.  But when I place the stairs it does not create a stairwell.  The stairs just go right through the 1st floor, floor.  What am I doing wrong?  I have attached 2 examples.

Stairs don't automatically create a hole in the floor above. You can use the Auto Stairwell tool as Law said, or make your own Open Below room on the floor above to manually create the opening.

Sorry, still don't understand.  Can you be a little more specific or maybe give me a link on how to create a basic set of stairs from the basement to the first floor.  I don't understand "make your own Open Below room on the floor above to manually create the opening".  Please help.

I provided links in the post just above. Very many answers can be found with a bit of searching.

 

Did you try using the Auto Stairwell tool? I'm sure Help explains how to use it. Select the stairs, click the tool, you get an opening in the floor above.

 

Did you review the Open Below room type in Help?

 

Did you watch any of the YouTube videos?

Where is the Auto Stairwell Tool in Home Designer Suite 2017.  Also, where is the Open Below Room at??
