Two challenges with these back stairs. As a vertical axis/spine in a home – they are an important visual and functional element to get right.
Challenge #1: Railings especially can be tricky. Over the years I find stair companies love to fit them out with so-called goose necks. As the word suggests, goose necks are ugly. It’s worth pushing your stair manufacturer to come up with another solution – it’s always possible!
Stair shafts have to be perfectly straight. Even slight deviations matter! This one is set with steel.
Challenge #2: I remember my steel installer giving me a challenge during installation: Jump, climb, crawl, free form from one wall to the other and the job comes free-of-charge….no way – I could not do it, even though he jumped around like a monkey and made it look so easy.
Would you? Could you?
