Hi Colin

 

OK. You know that your flights have a total width of 1040mm now. If that is ok for you and you declare this to be final I will send you the stairfile documents.

Hi Michel,

So changed width to 900 giving me a tread of 900+2*20=940mm (I hope)!

Hi Colin,

 

Here is the view of your stair step so that it becomes more clear on the measurements.

step-and-flight-witdh.pngImage Enlarger

as explained before, you set all your stringboards outside the stairwell so this means that the flight width is now the space between the stringboards. 

In your case 1040mm. A straight step is now 1080mm large as you have 20mm penetration left and right in the stringers. 

The width of the flights are now 1040 + 2*70 = 1180 mm

Attached you will find the plan view

Hi Michel,

Thank you for your help and comments,

I have changed the handrails to tenons as you suggested and have with hindsight decreased the height of the handrail to 900.

Also increased the stair width to 1040 for a 900 tread width.

 

With a bit of luck we might be there!

Appreciate your patience.

Regards

Colin

Hi Colin,

 

Look indeed better but why have you set all stringboards outside the stairwell? It can happen to need this in some occasions on just 1 stringer but you did so for all which in fact has no added value. The downside is that you have to add the thickness of the stringboards to read the total width of a flight? 

 

810mm + 2 times 70mm = 950. If the stringboards were as in a standard situation set in the stairwell you just had to indicate a flight width of 950. This is just a remark to make life easier. 

 

I aligned newel the newel posts as it was due to the type of post so I had to replace a post and align it properly.

I added length to the stringboards you mentioned so that they connect with the floor. You can do this by just increasing the width of the stringboards.

I noticed that you made a full penetration of the stringboards into the newels. I would advise creating a tenon connection so that you have a better finished view after connection. I added this also. You can do the same to the handrails if you like this option.

Finally the step penetration into the stringboards. The general rule is to penetrate 1/3 of the thickness. In your case, it would be 23mm but I set it to 20mm.

Have a look and revert with your comments

Hi Michel,

I’ve been through it again and have tried to address the points you raised hopefully it’s a lot better now fingers crossed.

Don't seem to be able to get newel post #1 and #4 lined up for some reason

String boards #2 and #4 to be covered in to ground level

Landing 2 left side attaches to wooden beam, landing exit attaches to wooden beam and top of right Stringer #4 attaches to beam.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Should be a bit closer to standard now.

 

Regards

Dear Michael,

Thank you for having a look at it not very good hey.

I guess I’m a bit old for new software by the looks of it.

I will have another go at it in the morning, is it OK to send it back again for you to have another look at it would be most appreciated.

It should have been near standard build but I think I just disappeared into a grease spot!!

Kind regards

Colin

Hi Colin,

 

To allow me to check your stair you need to tell me the story behind them. 

First, why are the steps not penetrating the stringboards and only the newels?

why is the handrail on step 15 offset with 30 mm?

why is the first left newel not connecting with the floor?

I am not even speaking about the connections between stringboard and newels and the arrival connection of step 15 with the floor level. 

 

There is quite a lot to look at as this stair build is not near a standard build.

 

regards

Good afternoon,

Please could you process the attached file of my stairs, if you have time I would appreciate it if you could have a quick look and  see if I've made any obvious mistakes as it's my first time with the software.

thank you

 

Colin
