Rocky Ledge Stair

We have gotten many questions about the stairs: They were custom designed and built in place by the builder - and are not available commercially. The entry doors were also custom made. The floors are constructed of a baked white oak surface-treated with an ebony analine dye. The stair handrails are painted black with a polyurethane top coat.

Love the staircase - newel especially! - Can you tell me the size of the balusters used here and also the stair depth. I am being told I need to use 3 balusters for a 10' stair width per code? I love your staircase here and it doesn't have three per stair so I am wondering about the stair depth and baluster size. Thank you!!

Angela,
The codes for baluster spacing are different from state to state. In California, the code spacing on a stair is 4 3/8" maximum between and 4" on a balcony or landing. In some cases you can use only 2 balusters per tread depending on width of the baluster and the run of your stairs. Keep in mind that even if the bottom of a baluster is 2" wide, if the top is tapered, the measurement between will be take there. While I did not work on the project pictured above, based on my experience, it looks like the spacing is at least at the 4 3/8" spacing or might be more. Not all photos you see on Houzz comply with every code from every jurisdiction.

Turnings Unlimited replicated these newels for me. They did a beautiful job and were wonderful to work with. They shipped them 500 miles to me, packed perfectly.

Interesting. Thank you so much. I had heard just one negative comment from a bamboo owner, but I really don't know too many who have it. And, I hear you on the ease of maintenance. In the back of my mind with these black stairs, I just see dust bunnies! I appreciate the advice.

Stunning! Love the look of not having posts at each landing and - avoiding the drastically angled handrail that drops down to the dif. level.Does this method of having a long sweeping handrail all the way to the floor have certain requirements.? We have a long run of 12 steps to a landing then two steps to the right, down to the floor .Thanks so much for the help.

Susan Stieglitz added this to Newel Post
The strength of a newel post can support the baluster at the bottom where the railing makes a turn.
