Thought you guys might like to see the house I'm working on.....I'm an electrician so I had nothing to do with its construction...the stair case was built on-site by a couple of Amish fellows.

Nice looking house. For some reason though, those stairs don't look like they would pass code for tread width. I've always wanted to do steps with a half log but haven't yet.

I think the home-owners are gonna have problems with the steps....they all have a very irregular face on them....you know...crooked like a log. I can see someone laying at the bottom of those soon!!!

Actually, the log steps have likely passed over a jointer a few times so as to eliminate that "just split" with a maul appearence. I would be more concerned about traction on a smooth surface vrs. irregular.

I HAD a set of stairs like that in my house...Fell down them twice. They are now benches around my fire pit..:shifty: :shifty: :shifty:

Mine were straight and square when they started out but soon became uneven and kind of rounded in spots....Out they came....:laughing: :laughing:

Hey Kingsix,

I am in the business of log homes. The home pictured looks to be about 1,500 sf. I would estimate that home to finish out around 195-215K. Many variables of course, but close as an average number goes.
