Hi Ryan,

Dotted lines on steps show the riser positions, on the left curved string the dotted line is the development of the outer face.

On handrail drawings the dotted lines show the baluster penetration and on the newel posts the position of strings and handrails.

Have fun building this, and looking forwards to seeing some photos.

All the best,

Ness

Hey Ness,

Thankyou very much, I will keep you guys updated with some progress photos. Couple of quick questions from reading through the drawings. In the parts PDF there are dotted lines and solid lines drawn where different components intersect. Can I assume that the dotted areas are just butt joints doweled and the solid areas are notched?

On the Step pages there is a dotted line outside of the step dimension. What is this? Pg 2-51.

On left stringerboard #1 pg 19 and cut string # 1 pg 27 what are the dotted lines here representing?

Thanks again and I look forward to getting into this one.smile

Hi Ness,

I would prefer to extend the flight as the right of the landing is in line with a step down and leaving a gap would leave a ledge.

Hi Ryan,

If we leave the stair as it is you can move it towards the beam and this will leave an extra space on the right of the landing of 80mm (3750-3670). As the corner post is off set 25m from the string the actual distance from the edge of the stair well at 3750 will only be 55mm.

Would this be OK or would you prefer to extend the 2nd flight the extra 55mm?

If so I’ll send the manufacturing files.

cheers,

Ness

Hi Ryan,

I wouldn’t notch the string into the beam.

I would suggest that you fix a wooden block in between the beam flanges, add a packing up to the back of the riser  and screw the last riser through the packing to the block. If the string is screwed to the riser and the wall string to the far wall this will fix the stair at the top.

This would make the total stair length 3750, behind the last step.

What do you think?

cheers,

Ness

Hi Ness,

I have 3750mm from the beam edge to the step. This I believe is your measurement of 3670.

I would then see the stringers notching into the web of the steel beam, see attached photo. The dimensions here are 45mm x 157 with a 6.5mm flange.

The Landing step would be on top of this beam.Top-of-Stair-Steel-Beam.jpg
