View Full Version : Budget steps or stair needed up to storage area
4th Sep 2011, 06:07 PM
I'm new to this site. Need to build 19 steps into the storage area above a studio. Does anyone know of a good priced handy-person who has experience in steps/stair to help me build this? (I'm in Melbourne - inner N/E suburb.)
Might suit a person needing hours (swapped) in a professional recording studio working with musician with CD/Film/TV credits. Thanks.

i am a professional stair builder and i would simply say this,19 steps stairs require a landing built in somewhere and handrails and this would normally fall into a bigger than handyman job.it is however possible to get quotes for a simple stair supply only that may not exceed 3 or 4 grand and get a handyman to erect it with your help.cheers danny.

You could go for steel stringers and bolted-on treads, but, as danielhobby says, you would need handrails.

Thanks Danny for the reply,
There is a landing drawn into the plan and handrails.
I saw a spiral on ebay but it looked really flimsy and only measured 1.3 metres wide for the whole staircase so step probably less than 500mm. (Sold for $2,400 plus $300 for delivery).

I'll look into this as an option.

spiral that is flimsy is probably an enzie or an economy(spiralworks) stair.ok when new but when pulled apart and reassembled can be a bit of a problem.$2300 is about the going rate for a second hand spiral,when new they cost around $7000 ish,

The spiral on ebay was/is new, but even for $2,300 (put it together yourself) it will be too flimsy (not to mention unsafe) with such a narrow stair. Will need something larger and more sturdy. Thanks, Danny. All comment appreciated.
