Park Front Lake Home

This Lake Michigan beach cottage embraces all things nautical, including the stair railings. Notice the nautical ties and ropes. The top stair did not exceed code requirements for a more structure spindle system. Quarter-sawn white oak floors and stairs.

So the staircase does meet code requirements?

Thanks for asking because that is a very important element in building. This actually does meet building code in the area, since the top step does not exceed the requirement for a railing. If we were one step higher, this would have met code and we would have needed to install a more substantial rail system. If this is something you are considering, please check your local building codes first.

Of the hundreds of staircases I've seen in my life this is my least favorite. I think the important element about it is even to an untrained eye it looks dangerous,piecemeal and generally just cheap and wacky.

Pete had a suggestion to use one long piece of wire and weave it through the eye hooks. This photo sort of expresses that although with rope.
