A client was building a custom home on the top of a mountain in PA. They designed an overlook on top of the home to take advantage of its location and view the surrounding landscape from all angles. However, due to budget constraints, the original master stair idea had been abandoned. So, the floor plan changed as well, further increasing the issues. The builder reached out to us about the possibility of a floating stair instead. A challenge with this idea was that the steel stair had a 190 degree turn and two 45 degree turns as it angled up through the floor system of the overlook area. We recommended dual stringers for this steel stair structure. They would have three-inch-thick oak treads and minimalistic round bolsters to keep a contemporary stair design.
We took a very detailed measuring process so we could utilize a 3D disto laser. Due to drafting this modern stair in 3D and utilizing a very precise layout process in the shop, all went well for the manufacturing, powder-coat, and install process. As a result, these modern stairs will provide access to a scenic PA for many years to come.
