Optimising Stairs and Stair Wells with StairDesigner software

When renovating an old house one often finds that it’s necessary to fit a stair into and existing stair well or adapt a stair well to fit a more practical stair.

As a specialised stair builder I’m often asked to build stairs in tight situations.

Often the existing stair is too steep and dangerous or there’s very little room to set up a stair that fits building regulations.

Lots of people down load the free version of StairDesigner to help calculate a stair for tight situation.

The good news is that the free version has some very neat tools for calculating the best fit  stair for your house.

So whether you are a home builder, a professional carpenter or an architect looking to calculate a tight fitting stair or the bast stair well size, you will find StairDesigner a great tool that you can use for free!

Here’s a short video to show how to use StairDesigner to optimise a stair and it’s stair well:
