    So far out of code financing is going to be a real problem.

    Judging from just this angle, the layout looks cool…but why would the stairs be built like that?

    To paraphrase Barbie(tm)
    “Hand rails are hard.”

    um I actually prefer no railings, I would love this. unless there are children then well the need is there, other wise why?

    Looks like a flipper got a little aggressive with the wall removal!

    Those late night snack runs downstairs can be treacherous in the dark, you may miss the first floor and fall straight to the basement.

    Nevermind the lack of rails. Couldn’t they have put the air registers elsewhere?

    It cools your feet!

    SAM: That’s what I was thinking 8-0. Just an accidental right turn stepping out of the upstairs hallway in the dark (or have a guest who is unfamiliar with the house do that), and there you go..instant broken legs/necks/backs/various other useful parts. How incredibly STUPID !

    At least they’re better then those really small steps in some older homes. My grandmother had a home with some stairs which went to the basement. I hated going down them because I always fear I would miss a step and fall.

    She had a weird basement too, because there was a hole in the wall which lead to another room with a big hole in the floor that was always filled with water. I guess it was an indoor well. I don’t have any pictures of it. I haven’t been there in over 10 years and hardly went down there anyway,
