As the image above and title says, this is a glitch. There are two holes where the stairs used to be (stairs are in the hallway spot above, moved out of the place to get a better shot). When I exited the game and restarted, the holes disappeared, and tried to attempt the glitch again, but didn't show up. So I'm just reporting to let you know it's possibly a minor coding error or something. It self-fixed since exiting and reopening removed it.

Before you ask

My driver is graphics driver and OS are up to date.

@matt_a56 As I'm not good with build issues, is this your issue: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-No-Floor-at-the-top-of-Configured-Stairs/m-p/81765... ?

 

The way you got there seems different but the result is kinda the same ?

Happy Gaming

That wasn't the issue, the tile in front of the stairs on top was fine. Where the two holes appeared was where the stairs were located. It was visual glitch as I could place items on the holes, and as I said in my first post, disappeared after exiting and turning on the game.
