Interesting. Looks like it shoudl be fine going up. Not sure about coming down though. I can't imagine that would meet normal "codes". Interesting idea. It does look cool and very well built.

First time posting a pic from Photobucket… So exciting :p Love the steps and ironic that you posted this… Just seen these steps at Menards tonight and thought genius although much more than I'd like to spend on the project.

Have an old stick construction 2nd floor which may or may not hold the weight of a floor etc. and have desperately wanted to figure a way to make a new 300 sq' room upstairs.

The logical entry point is from a closet which does not provide a regular rise/run ration and figured the steps done here or your method might work well… Found it ironic that within the same aisle they had 4/4 oak boards equal to two shaped steps for $20 ea. Figure 6 or so of those, some 2 by 4s and some 4 by 4s and could do something up nice and pretty but have been thinking about how user friendly these would be if needing to carry anything up/down…

Likely better than the stacking of foot lockers I have been using I imagine… :p Still dealing with a pain in butt literally from a 8' ish fall onto the tailbone 2 years ago…

Thanks for sharing and nice work!!

very unique set of stairs! Interesting that your client would pay good money for you to build them steps like that and yet they still have the utilitarian carpet surrounding the steps.

Your client will need to learn how to walk down those stairs. Up not so bad.

Very similar to "monk stairs," I have seen somewhere else. It's basically a tread for each foot, with foot size treads, each foot skipping a tread. I love your design though, it can allow for some kind of storage in each step as well.

So cool and interesting design, not your ordinary stairs. It looks well built and sturdy. Hope the client was happy. Great job!
