In designing Heaven’s steps we have to balance all we do, like making this great stairwell look as tiny as can do. With lots of storage and some flare, a secret place to hide somewhere, and all around it space to use, so nothings wasted, and you are amused.
Here are some shots of the proposed stairs, as we try to fit them in and see if we like the look. We are taking off the bottom two treads and changing it out to just one tread depth but two more steps in the same space to free up area where the kitchen fold up table might go.
Hope you like the chance to see how we design in tight spaces and what we decide will work as we attempt to design the perfect Stairway to Heaven.

heavens ladder view turned to door but it seems to be more of a visual obstruction this way. Makes dining area seem cramped too.
Now you can see the little touches that make it take so long.
The spaces come together as he gives the treads some form. This is to keep from hitting my knees on the next treads
The spooky view for those afraid of heights.
The Stairway to Heaven will still have tons of storage more.
Hope you enjoyed the little series on the how we built the Stairway to Heaven.
