Tauntons For Pros By Pros Series
Quantity: Print
Collected here are 27 articles from back issues of Fine Homebuilding magazine. Written by experienced builders from all over the country, these articles cover everything from simple basement steps to exotic curved stairways. And as I did in the first edition of this book, I'll conclude with a word of caution. The building codes that govern stairs are changing all the time. And so not all of the projects featured here comply with current national codes. If youre building any staircase, be sure to check with your local building department. And remember, as Tracy Kidder wrote in his book House, "Stair-making carpenters are like school crossing guards or trainers of seeing-eye dogs. They take on one of societys small sacred trusts."
