I have drawn out my floor and wall plans very carefully onto the MDF which has led to me realising I can’t have single flights of stairs in this house.
Here are the interior wall plans I did last night:
To allow width for the door frames, I will have to have a landing and switch the stairs back on themselves.
This is actually quite good because although it offers a challenge for my rapidly increasing DIY skills it also means I can have a double french door into the room that will be a lounge room. If I had a single set, the stairs would have to be located on the other side of the hallway because of the landing windows.
Of course I have been pondering having a lift however there’s not enough width in the attic for it to contain the lift shaft and also have doors to each of the attic rooms. So stairs it is.
Regardez the floors:
The floor with the mistake on it (bottom one) has to have a void which is slightly less deep that the other two because the second floor will be less high than the ground and first floor.
And that means that the stairs won’t have as many treads… I know I think that’s quite forward planning-y of me too!
Of course that now means that I have to saw the flights of stairs I purchased into variable heights dependent on the heights of the floors… perhaps holding onto the imaginary lift would not have been a bad thing….
