beautiful, but would break quite a few building codes in my country.

Aside from a railing I’m not sure where a building code is broken.

Having said that, the building codes in Canada are written by the provincial and territorial governments, not the federal government and having worked across much of this great country I can assure you that the codes are different from each other. In most provinces, the individual townships, cities can also alter the code, make them more difficult, so long as they exceed the over-all code. In some places, the frontiers of BC, there is no code, except maybe the electrical code which is often ignored.

Beautiful stair. Nice job.

In NYC at least, I don’t think it would violate any building code. Except for lack of hand rail, of course. In fact, I think it would qualify as a spiral stair where the rules are eased a bit. Interesting question. I’ll have to do a bit of research.

It is beautiful and has a unique design , looks cool.
In the photo it looks like the rise is higher on the lower stairs than the rest of the stairs,if that’s the case that alone would be a code violation in my area.

Look well thought out, looks almost like it is floating

Put me down for a like!

The comments about “code” brings back memories. Back a couple of decades ago my wife and I bought a river lot in a rural Alabama county. The plan was to build and move, so I get my county health department septic tank permit and go to the inspections department. I inquired about requirements to build. I was told I just needed some lumber and nails! Long story short, our daughter came along and we sold due the rural location and lack of services.

I think it looks outstanding. Who cares about codes. I love the simplicity of the stairs yet the complexity of the build. Well done sir.
