Grab another log, look to the ground next to the first placed log, and right-click for the circle outline. You will also see a line in between the two logs, indicating the second log is aligned. It also shows the length of your actual stairs. Place them in your desired length.

2. Place Support Beams

Now we’ll be setting up the support beams. Grab another log and look at the placed log, and look at it from the front to get an arrow outline that is at an angle. Place your support beam and do the same for the other placed log.

3. Place Stairs

Now for the stairs. Go in between the support beams and right click to get the jagged outline. Your character will automatically split the log and turn them into planks and place them. If you have spare planks lying around, use them to not waste your full logs.

4. Adjust Height of Stairs

If you’re not looking to make tall stairs, what you can do is chop off a section of the standing support beam. Go close to it with your axe until you see a red outline. Chop it off at your desired height, and do the same with the other standing beam.

You now have control of how tall you want your stairs to be! If you’re looking for quick tips and tricks to play Sons of the Forest, check this article here!
