Overview

Inside you will learn how to attach a stair stringer to joist, beams and ledgers. You’ll even learn how to create hanging ledgers out of plywood. You will also learn how to make the necessary modifications when dealing with different treads and risers thicknesses. This is a common problem and usually occurs when a stairway connects to a floor or landing that uses different sized floor sheathing.

I’ve built over 1000 stairways and can tell you from experience that laying out the stair stringer correctly, with a solid understanding of what you’re doing is the most important part of building an exceptional stairway. This book should be and hopefully will be in the future, standard reading for architects, building designers, structural engineers and home builders.

Meet the Author

Born, raised and still living in Southern California, United States of America. I don’t know if I would consider myself to be another typical high school dropout, but in the 11th grade I took and passed a high school equivalency test that allowed me to leave school one year early. From then on it was the school of hard knocks and when I finally figured out this wasn’t going to work, became a student of life. I have over 35 years of experience building, remodeling and repairing apartments, condominiums, residential homes and commercial as well as industrial properties. My interests are history, psychology, business, construction, gardening and thoroughly enjoy sharing the things I’ve learned with anyone willing to listen. There is nothing better than spending time with friends and family having a wonderful meal, a few beers and intelligent conversation.
