But if you’re hiring someone to do it, maybe don’t go with the cheapest guy you can find on Craigslist, because that person probably didn’t go to “how to build stuff” school either, and he’s gonna make some choices that will destroy your mind and also your back.
Choices like these staircases.
15. Blending in
Now that’s what I call trippy.
14. Stealth: 100
What kind of horrendous troll would do something like this?
13. Stair into the void
For the lemmings in your life.
12. Wood that I could
I’m sitting down and somehow I slipped while looking at this photo.
Ya’ll aren’t super clear on how wheels work, huh?
10. Hitting a wall
“City code says we gotta have stairs, doesn’t say they gotta go anywhere.”
9. Over the line
Visual clues, people. VISUAL CLUES!
8. Step by step
It’s like a staircase made from the trays on a booster seat.
7. Falling for it
Cool design, terrible placement.
6. Watch your step
How many lives have been lost to this?
5. Form over function
“I’ll just put a bunch of crap on my tiny, railless staircase.” – someone with a death wish
Again, looks cool, terrible in practicality.
3. Sep up
Who is this for?
2. You’re cut off
What’s a blueprint?
1. Floating away
“It’s all good, I’ll just never go downstairs.”
Remember – measure twice, cut once.
