I,ll try to keep this long story short, The long story can be seen here on a running forum

The short story, My Mate Simon is building an A-Frame house in Japan, he had a very difficult space to fit a stair in. Roof height was the biggest problem both on the A frame side and the height of the initial rise.
I started to do some homework on it and ran the forum, with lots of research and help from people here and in particular Tony_S , this is what we ended up with.

This was done over a week of days off. Lumber was difficult to get in Hokkaido Japan and we ran out of time to order good stuff, ended up with low grade pine of 38mm thick. I laminated the stringers to get double thickness.

Treads where checked into the stringer using a template and flush trim plunge router bit, then fixed with 9mm 5 inch coach bolts.

Anyways , the stair super structure finished nice and strong , The wood will just need some dressing up before oil or hopefully paint.

Some pics of the construction.

Special mention to My Lovie Cheryl who worked along side me continually for 4 and 1/2 days with out one whinge.

Thanks for reading.
Regards
Anth

Cheers Uncle Simon, you have to say that though because it was your 50th Birthday present.
Not everybody gets a staircase for their 50th.

Beautiful work Anthony well done! They say if you can build a staircase you can built anything! Calculating for each step riser to be identical from top to bottom takes someone that knows their stuff. Be proud you earned it Anthony!

Great job Anthony. As said they sometimes can be a problem getting the right measurements. I had a similar staircase in our old house and found it difficult to change the bottom 4 stairs from going right to left.

Just goes to show what taking things one step at a time can achieve!! ...sorry couldn’t think of anything smarter/funnier to say

A real mans thinking exercise that’s for sure.

A combined brains trust of LJs certainly paid off

Yes that,s for sure, LJ,s Brains trust paid off here.
As I said at the start of the forum I knew I was capable of the woodwork stuff, its the design and layout of the stairs that had so so many questions to be answered. Once all the planning was done I literally picked up the track saw, router , glue and bolts and away I went. But the LJ,s brains trust sorted the planning.
as I,ve always said Rob. People dont plan to fail, they generally fail to plan.
Cheers to you Rob and thanks for the comments.

Anth
