Help needed: Stair Landing Question

Recommended Posts

I am trying to create U-shaped stairs but I need to split the default rectangular landing into two equal parts with a single riser in between.

 

I already figured out how to get close to this by using 3 stair sections and connecting the two landings with a single-thread section however I actually need to eliminate that single thread and directly connect the two landings with a single riser.

 

Can anybody help please?

 

Thanks.

Depending on which Home Designer program you have, you cold do it with 2 landings. Do one set of stairs and set the top height and select your riser height. Put the 1st landing at the bottom. Then set the next landing at a riser height lower. Then you can complete the stairs by looking at the measurements left.

Yes, I've actually done that but of course in that case the whole stair doesn't actually behave as one. In other words, it's actually split into two disconnected sections. I can't get the two landings to snap together no matter what I do.

 

I am using Home Designer Pro 2019 on a Mac.

 

Thanks.

I see you said Pro, but answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on, then see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

None of the Chief Architect/Home Designer products have the ability to split a landing.

 

Needs to be done manually as Keith said.

Keith & Eric, thanks for your responses. And Eric, thanks also for all the pointers. Brand new to the forums here as you might guess...

 

Bummer that it's not possible to just connect two landings but the answer seems to be clear at least...

 

Thanks.
