Hello Bill from N.E.,

I'm Dave from N.E. Goooo Red Sox? I hope they improve a bit this year.

Anyways, so you would like to build these U-shaped stairs by yourself, huh? If I was you and I wasn?t sure how to calculate the cuts and make the turns, I would consider hiring a carpenter from your area who is knowledgeable in stair building. I?m sure he can get you started and when you feel comfortable in finishing this project by yourself, just let him know.

Or maybe you would like to jump into this project by yourself, and you need some good advice before starting. I suggest you purchase some reading material that will assist you in the calculations of this stairway. Here are some training materials that you may want to purchase in order to get going with your u-shaped stairs.

Good luck

Or you can just sit back and watch a video of Scott Schuttner building stairs.
