How can I add 1x4 tile steps to the bottom of the front opening in the gazebo model below? The base of the gazebo is a 10x10 octagonal plate (part 89523). I have tried using wedge and round plates but the studs on the base plate are too wide apart to fit the plates.

I want to emulate the stairs as shown here:

Add a single jumper plate, in the position shown below, rotated 45 degrees in relation to the direction of the studs of the octagonal plate. Connect plates as needed (shown below: a 4x4 plate). Add tiles on top of the plate(s) if needed.
