Building Stairs



DESIGN Tab ---

Entering your Measurements

Measure your wood and opening, and put
the measurements in the blue boxes.


Checking Your Calculated Values

The red boxes automatically calculate important values
that you need to build your stairs. Every time you change
a blue value, the red boxes are updated instantly. Check
your numbers and adjust the blue values if necessary.
Do you have enough tread overhang? Is the angle of
the staircase low enough? It's all right here for you.


See Your Staircase Design in a Drawing

Besides checking values in the red boxes, you can also see your staircase
in a live diagram. This diagram updates instantly whenever you make changes.
Here is a design with 11 treads:


Click to Instantly Change Stair Tread Number

changes affect your design. (Non-functioning screenshot below.) Here is a

will give you the actual values they changed to.
