    Hi suzannethomas1 - Thanks for the question, but I regret that i can't help you. I would suggest talking to someone locally who can visit your house and assess existing conditions. They would or should be also familiar with your local building codes.

    What is the colour of the stain for stairs?

    Hi Jana - I don't believe it is. The artwork in the foreground and at the top of the stairs were purchased in Ubud Bali, Indonesia. There is also a signature at the bottom of each painting that spells - 'budys'

    Thank you, the one in the foreground very much resembles the work of a Russian artist represented in a gallery I worked in.

    Hi ainsleydawson,

    The finish is maple, stained in a 'walnut' tone. (Walls Alive no. 7205 Walnut Stain) www.wallsaliveedmonton.calls.net

    Hope this helps!

    Hi mymellow,

    You're correct, it certainly would be safer for people with special needs (not so sure how safe it would be for toddlers or to move furniture though), but anyhow that would require 1/12 slope (handicap ramp) to meet code. And if that's the case then this particular stair run would be the length of this house. Even if you did a 'switch-back' design It would not be practical since it would eat up too much floor space.

    Also, the max allowable opening between treads is 4" and on this stair it's actually under that so along with the handrail, i would consider this particular design safe.

    These were 12" - Check your local codes to confirm what you can do in your region

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Stair Design and Construction for a Safe ClimbJun 26, 2013

A straight-run stair is just that: a stair that doesn't turn or curve or something else. It just simply travels in a straight line from a lower floor to an upper floor and vice versa.Though we'll be looking in detail at a closed-riser stair, this stair has open risers. Some building departments don't allow such a stair design, as there's a fear that small children may slip between the treads and fall.What's interesting in this stair is that the open risers are kept narrow, 4 inches or less, to comply with the local building code and still be open.

Mitchell Parker added this to Houzz Tour: Wide-Open Views on a Narrow Canadian LotFeb 18, 2013

The open-riser staircase gives the appearance of floating wood slabs — in this case, more maple with a walnut stain. Apart from looking cool, the design lets the homeowners see from the workstation to the entryway, and allows air circulation between the two floors. Thirdstone came up with an economical design for the handrail: The architects developed the middle brackets, then purchased 1 1/4-inch wood dowels from a hardware store. The painting was purchased in Bali and picks up the various wood tones in the house.

As we will have a wall against one side, this is what it's going to feel like (but NOT the spaces in the steps, just the wall).
