What Houzz contributors are saying:

Get the angle right. The first thing we'll do is set up the geometry for our new stair. We'll divide the total rise (the distance from the first floor to the second floor) into equal parts, with each part not more than 7¾ inches (the maximum height allowable per the International Residential Code, or IRC). Next we'll want to establish the overall length of the stair, also called the carriage or total run. In our example that will be 140 inches. Now we know that we need a space that's at least 36 inches wide (a minimum code requirement) by 140 inches long (plus landings at the top and bottom) for the stair. We also know that the angle of the stair won't be too shallow or too steep, so it will be comfortable to walk up and down.
