Love the staircase, its a good idea & one which should be used more often here in UK but isn't, slowly getting very envious ! Very Happy

Thanks Az!
Of course, a big open window is all you need to get to the second floor.

David H wrote:It's not the width, it's the steeper pitch saves the space. The offset treads allow you to walk naturally up a much steeper pitch because the each toe doesn't have to dodge the alternate stair treads. And a steeper pitch means a smaller horizontal component, so less floor space lost under the stairs. Another way I've seen it done is with full treads all the way across, but with cut-outs on alternate treads for the toes to pass.

I saw pictures of that style and just didn't like it very much. It seemed weak, structurally. Like I'd be worried about the stair breaking. I don't know.

I can DIY, but it will be obvious I did it myself. I have ability but not much craft.

You'd definitely want to pick your boards carefully for that, and make the treads thick and no wider than necessary, but the amount of wood remaining after the cut-out should still be more than in a typical ladder rung.  

I've seen that style used in boat companionways (where it was probably mahogany or oak so splitting's not a problem) and in remote log cabins where the tread-planks were split or hewn from logs.  Using twice as much wood so you can do half as much joinery could  make sense when you're working with just a few hand tools.

Yeah that makes sense. That design also does away with the middle stringer. I just didn't care for it.

It would look odd unless the cut-outs were rounded or had some other sort of detailing

I like the 1st set of stairs. Should they be easier to get a heavy wardrobe up ?? Be easier coming down, just let the thing go, it can slide down under its own weight Smile

Size of their antlers, that could do some damage.
