Plan, Elevation, Section

We understand that it is difficult to find blueprints for a home that will meet all of your needs. Customize the home of your dreams with built-in speakers and controls specially-designed for your house plan. To make the rake properly the height at the highest point needs to be measured together with the length along the floor from the lowest point and drawn up on paper (as a long, thin triangle) to get the gradient. On the second floor we see the entire first floor stair and the stair from the second to the third floor has been cut to reveal the toilet space under the stair.

The first and last riser heights of the rough stairs are modified to adjust for the addition of the finished floor. And if you are able to read through the instructions during business hours (M-F 9am -5pm ET, Sat 9am-1pm ET), you can call Spiral Stair Warehouse during your read-through for assistance. Another point that I make in the sketch is that at the bottom of a flight, if there is a wall facing it then the bare minimum width of the floor area or landing should be 900.

Stairs can be fully supported by walls from underneath or the sides, or they can seem to float in space by the assistance of steel structural elements. All building regulation spirals must comply with the 100mm sphere rule, i.e there must be no gaps greater than 99mm anywhere on the spiral staircase. You can also use spiral staircases to access theater galleries, catwalks and gridirons.

If you think you will often have one person going up while one is coming down, you should make your staircase about 48 in. wide. My opinion – From a mechanical standpoint, if you can not make your own design layouts and plans (including mathematics) of a spiral staircase you have no business trying to build one. A full set of plans in CAD format with a license to build and copyright release giving you legal permission to make changes to the plan and make copies to build the house.

These staircases are often used when space is at a premium and a normal straight, L-shaped or curved staircase will not work. Everyone has it, because otherwise none of us would be able to rehearse a difficult conversation, write a shopping list or plan a journey! While not walkable, this piece of fabric architecture by artist Do Ho Suh is a 1:1 replica of the staircase that connects his apartment to his landlord’s.
