Trouble creating T stairs

Recommended Posts

I am using Home Designer Essentials 2017. I am trying to create a landing with two stairs going down opposite of each other - creating a T stair.

 

After dozens of attempts to get the first set of stairs to join to the landing they eventually do. But it seems no matter how hard I try I cannot get the second set of stairs to join to the landing.

 

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

 

Thanks

Start by drawing an L shaped stair -- draw lower stair, draw upper stair (just one or 2 steps is enough), then click between them to automatically place the landing.


 


Now delete the unneeded upper steps.


 


Open the steps and adjust the rise and run as required.


 


Select the steps, copy/reflect about the landing.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

David's video explains it all, there's no need to copy/reflect or delete anything. Further you can't adjust the risers and run using that

 

version of HD software.

Thanks for the video response, it was very informative and helped get me where i needed.

 

I created two up stairs in the same direction.

Placed a landing between them, then rotated the stairs going up away from the landing and had it going down from the landing.

Then I clicked and dragged the landing to make it longer.

And this is the end result (using trial version of Suite since I'm on my work computer, not my home computer).
