  2. Thanks for posting this 🙂 Very creative!
    How did you fastened the lowest two treads? It looks like there is not enough space to work.

    • Stairs are usually rise+run=15-17″ Figure the tread depth and then the height of the staircase. Once you have these numbers, you can divide the space up and be sure you meet the 15-17″ total amount. See your local building codes for details.

  3. Excellent process and steps. Do you feel there will be any flex on the treads or do you feel you will need to support the outside of the treads with cables? Thank you.

  4. I have been googling around looking to do something similar. It looks like these have been in for several years now, how have they held up?
