Stair Vignette attempt! All feedback is appreciated.

Question: 1. Is it considered overbuilt if I continue my handrails along the landings? Is it better to just stop them at 12" beyond the top and bottom of each of the flights of stairs?

2. At my top landing, if there is exactly 2' from door to edge of landing, which is half of required min dimension, am I ok or does my landing need to be longer in the direction of travel? My understanding is that doors cannot reduce the width by more than half...

Working on the stair vignette, and I'm encountering an issue that I haven't seen addressed before - is it a problem if the handrail extension overlaps with the push side clearance on the door to the janitor's closet? (see attached image, at overlap of sketch rectangle and sketch circle). Thanks in advance for your feedback.

2nd attempt at Ramp Vignette. All feedback is appreciated!

Question: At the moment the railing at the bottom of the ramp aligns perfectly with the front face of the wall, BUT, if it were to extend beyond into the corridor would this be a problem if it were less than 4"?

Score came back as a fail, which I was not surprised about, but I cant believe that I failed te vignette! Anybody has any idea what I could have overlooked? I definitely followed all advice I read in this board. Im super confused and now nervous that I might fail it again if I dont understand what I did wrong

Im looking for someone to pair up with to purchase the Amber Seminar, if anybody is interested let me know! 

If an architect specifies R17 to be used as insulation, what kind of specification is that considered?
