This is one of my favorite stair railing ideas for a home. I love how it is so practical and adds such a nice touch to any home.
But I’m not a fan of the idea of having one long, slim thing that goes up and down the stairs. I’d much rather have stairs that are shorter and wider, with more space between them. But I guess if I’m going to have stairs, I may as well go with the simplest option.
I’m not a fan of staircases, but I do think they are useful and I hope someone will think of this as a solution. And I’m not sure that they will. As you can see in the photo (above) the stair is actually quite short and narrow. It doesn’t seem to have any kind of support system to keep it from tipping over. Also, the rail is too narrow to allow people to walk on it.
Thats because the real problem with stairs is that they are not very safe. When you step on a step, there is a small chance that you could roll down the edge on your way to the ground. If you are going to be working up a flight of steps, you have to be careful. In fact a good stair railing can be the greatest hazard that you face, since it is almost impossible to get a ladder up to the top of the steps without making your life very uncomfortable.
I hate stairs, but so does everyone else in this video. Because the only person that is actually safe on a stair is the one that’s wearing a safety harness, not the person who is standing on a step. It’s impossible to walk up two people if you don’t have a step.
A couple of years ago, I was working in a home that had a very unstable stairway. This is not the only stair case where I had to climb up to the landing. I was doing a lot of work that involved climbing a bunch of steps that were no less than five stories high. One time I was on the landing and just happened to miss a step. I felt like I was falling down a long, long ways.
In my defense, I do not believe I was in any danger. In fact, it was a very mild fall, but it still hurt. I probably should have been wearing a harness, but I went on that job anyway.
I was climbing the stairs of a home that looks like it was built in the 50’s or 60’s. I was climbing up to the landing when I realized that the stairs weren’t stable. I was at the top of the stairs, and there was this man’s foot sticking out. It looked like he had a rope tied to his foot and was hanging from it. I just stood there, letting it be and waiting to fall all the way down.
the thing about this story, is that even the simplest of staircases in most homes can be dangerous when you’re on your hands and knees. If there is a stair that is a particularly steep incline, it’s not uncommon for a person to fall down the stairs, only to be shocked and disoriented when they hit their head against the metal stairs.
Home Depot had a really bad incident a few months ago where a worker was killed in a stairwell. At the time, I was on a vacation in the Bahamas and I had already been to a few places where I had seen some strange staircases. I decided to take my vacation to see more and I was on a cruise ship when the accident happened. I was just about to get off when the stairwell just happened to fall on my head.
