Hi Anne, sounds like a lovely project you’ve got there. Try googling ‘file size reducer’ or similar, not sure what files you’re trying to upload. There’ll be loads of free services for reducing the file size. As many images, plans and information as possible would be great.

Just to let you know, we offer a way for you to use our pro stair software, StairDesigner, to design your projects yourself. If you are working on a one-off project, you aren’t going to want to buy the software. Instead you need to become a full member and pay for a StairFile. We will review your design and revise it so it is as buildable as possible. We will also send you all the manufacturing details – cutting lists and plans, 1:1 templates and so on – so you or a builder can get it built.

Here is more info on the StairFile service: https://wooddesigner.org/stairf…..e-service/

We don’t take over the complete design process for you though.

But working with you using the StairFile service you’ll have a very affordable way to get a workable stair design, normally one of the most challenging projects you’ll come across in woodwork.

Take a look at this page which highlights loads of projects amateur and part time stair builders have completed using our StairFile service: https://wooddesigner.org/stair-…..timonials/

All the best, Stefan

Anne Mackenzie-Hunt

Hello, my husband and I moved to an old Vicarage in France which is need of ALOT of work. One of our most challenging tasks so far has to be to come up with a design for the staircase from the 1st to the 2nd floor. We only have 280cm length (limited by a metal beam which was used to replace some old beams which were at waste height!) and the height of the space (having taken flooring on both floors into consideration) is 285cm!

I have tried to attach file to help, but the files are too large and I don’t how to reduce them on a PC as I’m used to my Mac!

If you image the stairs running from left to right, there is a window to the left. We don’t want to block the space in front of the window as the door to my daughters’ bedroom is going to be there and there will be a corridor on “this side” of the staircase.

Any ideas?? Any input really would be very much appreciated!

Many thanks,
