Opening Wall Under Stairway

Recommended Posts

I am looking to open up under stairway.  How do I cut the wall out to follow the bottom of the stairway.  At this point Im using a doorway without casing or jamb, if I could reshape this doorway top, that would be the answer.    I dont want to expose the stairway.

Answers like this one depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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.

I’m taking by the silence this is not possible with this software?


Last time I looked, there was no signature and no picture. When you edit a post, like to add a picture, it does not show up in the forum as changed.


Anyway, see if this helps.

Yes it does -- you watched me do it in the same software.

You can check for program updated via the Help menu.


But I don't believe that's the problem. And you don't need to use a Pony Wall. That's just one way to cover the bottom of the wall. You could use a Sloped Soffit, or just use a wall that's solid drywall like I show.
