All I joined this site for was to know if anyone knows how to build free standing stairs?
What size and shape of staircase are you thinking of building? There are books out there but they lack the details for a homeowner to actually build it. Also, some cities and counties require engineering which can be a pain because I have yet to find one that understands a curved freestanding design. However, engineers will sign off on designs once you direct them to the proper sources for the calculations.
Hi, I'd suggest buying or checking out this book:
Plan It, Dig It, Build It! By David Sauter
It has plans in there for a free-standing staircase. There's no way we could provide you the detailed plans and photos required for something so complicated.
Google Books offers a preview of this book online, where it shows you the chapter of freestanding staircases.
I do. I assume you mean a spiral or raduis stairs but I can build both as well as free standing stairs without any raduis granted they be adjacent a wall.
WELL I DONT KNOW HOW TO BUT THAT IS A GOOD REASON TO JOIN
