Instead of modeling it in-place:

 

Use a Casework --Countertop Family for this. There should be one that comes with Revit out of the box, with parameters

for length, width, height, counte thickness, and Materials.

 

Load it into your project and then specify the Materials. You should even be able to assign separate Materials for the countertop and the backsplash, if needed.

Glad it worked.

 

For the steel stairs, try using Help in Revit for creating stairs--this should be a good place to begin.

 

If you then have trouble or more detailed questions, start a new thread on the forum.

 

Hint: Revit will create your stairs and railings automatically. You select the stair tool, draw the run(s) in plan,

specify which Levels the stair begins and ends at, click finish and it is done. That said, there are some problems

with the stair and railing tools, most of which can be overcome with tricky workarounds. But if it is a basic stair,

you should be able to create it quickly and effectively.

 

cheers
