This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
HugeLunatic made the Steadyfast Stairs recolourable, not happy with the original colour I decided to recolour them in AL Wood Colours and of course I had to do the Longhorn Balustrade as well. The Steadyfast Stairs recolours are base game compatible, however, the Longhorn Balustrade will need at least 1 EP to work, the same as other custom fences.

ETA: HugeLunatic also has an "Open underneath version of the steadfast stairs" that is slaved, these recolours will show up for them as well as long as you have both meshes in your game, you can find them HERE.

I have not included the recolourable Steadyfast Stairs MESH by HugeLunatic, needed for these Steadyfast Stair recolours to show in your game, you will have to get it HERE.

The stairs are base game compatible, at least 1 EP is required for the fences!

The Longhorn Balustrade:
Cloned From: The Longhorn Balustrade
Found: Build Mode > Miscellaneous > Fencing Tool Price: ยง45.

Steadyfast Stairs:
Found: Build Mode > Staircases > Connecting Stairs Price: ยง0.
