I can honestly say that I am glad that is over with and I do not care to do it again, even though it went well.......a lot of things could have gone really wrong and I am not as strong as I once was!

Beautiful stairs. Do the open risers meet code in your area? Here they must not allow a 4.38 diameter sphere to pass. With the tread thickness those openings may even be under 4 3/8.

As the stairs sit, the open risers do not meet code as they are actually closer to a 6" spacing. We wanted as much space as possible to allow for a nice view thru the steps so we simply planned to add small kicker boards to the back of each step until after the final inspection and then, if they just happen to fall off, well then!!!

Well, considering that I hurt my back the other day and woke up this morning with pain, I knew it was only going to get worse. Fortunately, I actually used my head and lifted with my legs for the most part and then putting them in place was more of military type press which was all arms and shoulders. So, the back does not hurt anymore than when I started and in some ways, I think the weight helped to stretch it a bit, problem is, compression will set back in tonight!!!

Hey JK,

I remember looking at one of your photos that was taken from the kitchen, looking out at the pond, and thinking to myself "I hope he does an open riser stair so it doesn't block out too much light". Nice job!

And nice job all round. Thanks for keeping us updated. I hope to be taking on a nearly identical project some day. I missed out on a nice piece of land 4 yrs ago because I didn't have the nuts to take on 2 mortgages then hope for a quick build.

Being a landscaper, I'm looking forward to the exterior progress picks.

Kevin

Heck just see if they pass as is then. Sometimes inspectors get side tracked and miss the obvious. If it fails then add the aircraft cable type of guard for a deck. Then if you remove them to poly or something, I'd understand.

3/28/13 Update: The steps are in and kitchen cabinets have been delivered.

As was stated in a prior post, the steps are in and my back now feels as though a disc is a little swollen......ALEVE and a heating pad to the rescue I hope!!!

The kitchen cabinets were delivered today and the carpenter started out working on the front porch decorative wrap stuff (I will get pics of this tomorrow as it will likely be done). I believe his plan is to put the kithchen cabinets up tomorrow and then move on to hanging interior doors(likely Monday). As for me, well, the tile shower and bath surround are calling my name!

Here are a couple of more shots of the staircase. If I remember I will take one later from the kitchen area looking thru the steps and provide a measurement of the spacing.
