I’m sure I could manage the stairs and I’m old enough to be your mother. As opposed to a ladder that takes hardly any room or the other stairs we see that take a lot, this appears to be a middle of the road option. Emphasis on option. It certainly is aesthetic.
The stairs are pretty and look nice in the context an overall look of the home. I can’t tell if there is room for storage behind the stairs or could be incorporated into the staircase. Whenever I see a ladder or innovative stairs (especially stairs that appear precarious in pics) I picture myself trying to wrestle clean laundry/bedding up those stairs.
A 3 a.m. potty call may be “interesting” but no way could I manage those stairs with a my hands full of anything.
I currently live in a tiny house with a wide tread ladder at a pretty angle that makes it easy to get up and down. But the laundry test is the one that matters. I would like to have a staircase that would allow me to carry up laundry with both hands. For now, its a laundry bag with straps to I can put it on my back or sliding the basket up with one hand and holding on to the rail with the other. I’m thinking this staircase would be only slightly better than my ladder but wish I could try it out…basket in hand.
Oo-la-la.. Je l’aime!
the Es’ket house had a good design for semi-spiral stairs for the agile. If the purchaser needs steps not ladders, I really like my iron spiral stairs with a decent hand rail to grip. they do not take up more than 8-9 sq ft and do no light in the larger space. And you do not have to back down them to go downstairs. the semi-spiral steps in this house would be difficult for me to use.
My experience with spiral staircases is that they are all, to a degree, downright dangerous.
I agree, aesthetically nice. But am I going to love the aesthetics if I slip/trip and break my neck? I think not.
I have a spiral staircase that is iron and has railing on both sides. The treads are carpeted inside a frame. That is very safe. However, I agree Eric, without the railings and with finished wood treads it would be dangerous. The pictures are of two different staircases. While the walls help, I would put in a grab bar or two and a railing at the top for safety .
Thw staircase needs some modifications. First, a handrail-2 rows, lower and upper. Second, they stairs are open in the rear-a slipping foot, particularly a small one, could end in disaster. Enclosing the rear of each step will help children and pets scale more safely. It will also create storage cubbies for small but important items.
Three-they should have the treads reinforced. One for weight underneath; the other on top with anti skid material.
Yep, that pretty much covers it. But same story in almost every example, no hand holds, no anti-slip, loads of storage space wasted here, not really sure how much weight those steps would take either. Cute, and dangerous. Just one more reason to hate sleeping lofts – but I hated them as a kid too, and am 75 now, so there. If I where to have one of these, any loft would be for storage, perhaps office space, but more likely only storage – and WITH a stair with adequate handrails, anti-slip surface, and storage space.
Love the stair design, which I have encountered in a few wee places in Paris. The stair light is at a good level, but needs a protective cover like one would find below deck on a boat. A curved handrail would be an added safety issue worth having. When groggy at 2 am and needing to come down the stairs to use the bathroom, or answer the door, a handrail provides stability so one won’t fall. Would also add some type of rail on the edge of the sleeping loft, for safety as well.
The washer/dryer combo under the kitchen counter near the sink is brilliant, because it saves on plumbing expenses.
Sorry, not my idea of Best staircase. I’ve see on Pinterest stair cases for tiny homes that are fantastic. I love the stairs with storage build into the stairs and some have closet or pantry space built into the stairs dead space. For me the most important requirements of tiny house living would be storage, good stair design and a loft that you can sit upright without banging your head. Also kitchen and toilet that’s not a bucket.
I think I’ve seen every type of build for the THOW. These stairs look good but the snapshot from above looks downright scary. Maybe they installed a railing before they sold it?
I’m starting to enjoy the TH’s that are not on wheels. Apartments, small homes and cabins that are under 1,000 sq ft. They just make more sense and are not repeats of each other. There is only so much that can be done in a 20 foot long trailer.
