Help building wall next to stairway
No, its very confusing---thanks for attempting to help!
Right now there are 3 levels to the house...each with their own doors. At the back of the stairway on floor 2 there is an entrance stairway to floor 1. But right now, in order to access that floor, you have to leave the residence on floor two, enter the communal foyer and then go down the stairs. The goal is to create an external doorway in that foyer, and open up an internal doorway into that new private area. It would make a portion of the foyer a part of the residence on floor two, so that you can access the first floor without having to leave the unit. Does that make sense?
I've attached a VERY rudimentary picture to give you an idea. Top is before,bottom is after
