Modern Stairs with Hidden Closet – Construction Video

A well designed & built staircase is the highlight of any house, and this 1930’s remodel is no exception.  I completed this house over a year ago, but forgot to compile all the construction footage!  So, reaching all the way back to 2012 for footage I finally edited this video of the process!  Enjoy!

For more pictures of this house you can visit the website of Architect Hugh Jefferson Randolph, AIA.

    This always seems to come up on my projects. How do you handle the code requirements on a stair like this?
    R311.7.8.2 Continuity.
    Handrails for stairways shall be continuous for the full length of the flight, from a point directly above the top riser of the flight to a point directly above the lowest riser of the flight. Handrail ends shall be returned or shall terminate in newel posts or safety terminals. Handrails adjacent to a wall shall have a space of not less than 11/2 inch (38 mm) between the wall and the handrails.

    1. Handrails shall be permitted to be interrupted by a newel post at the turn.
    2. The use of a volute, turnout, starting easing or starting newel shall be allowed over the lowest tread.
