Need help putting a spiral staircase in a small space over 3 floors
October 4, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I am re modelling my house in the hills. The existing staircase is ghastly and dark and takes up a lot of space. This house is downhill and built in steps. I want to remove the existing staircase ( pictures attached ) and put a spiral one pls advise

Are you using a contractor for your remodel? What is his opinion? Will you be able to get furniture in and out of the house with a spiral? What about an elevator?

I don't think your problem is unsolvable, but with the multiple landings your spiral stairs is going to be a complicated one. Make sure your GC has experience installing spiral stairs and I would contact a number of spiral stair manufactures for design help as well.
