They look interesting if you want to be different. I don't see them
being very practical if you have any mobility problems though. Stairs
for healthy 20 year olds?

With a limited amount of area to place them, that may have been the
only practical means of access to the next floor. Actually, it looks
very practical to me. Not too many will be taking them two at a time
though, not going up anyway.

All those corners would make it even more interesting if you ever
slipped and "fell down the stairs".

The lawyers will love it. Who in their right mind would put something
like that in their house?

The owners of that house would be well advised to not let anyone other than
immediate family use those stairs. If someone were to fall down them, the
potential for serious injury is many, many times that of a normal staircase.
A personal injury lawyer would look at those and see nothing but big dollar
signs. I care to much about my family to ever put something like that in my
house.

Those are called "alternating tread stairs". They are used where
there is insufficient footprint for a normal, full-width stairway. The
pitch line for alternating tread stairs can be up to 65 degrees, while
a normal stairway it has to 45 degrees.

I'd try them. They are no more difficult that regular stairs. When
you go up or down, you use only one side of the tread anyway so they
eliminated it.

My guess it was done for the novelty just to be different and there is
a normal set of stairs elsewhere. I'm sure they would not meet code
in the US.

Have a friend that put these in his cabin. Due to space needed and very
steep. Miserable to carry things going down. Dangerous. WW

A variation of what I've heard called Jefferson stairs. As soon as I can
get a pic downsized I'll post the set my project manager came up with for
our 16X24 Colorado[ timberframe] cabin.

They are called "Jefferson stairs" after Thomas Jefferson. My 'project
manager' for our tiny [24X16 timberframe] cabin nearing completion in
Colorado came .up with a plan and built a sterling example for access to the
small sleeping loft.
Pictures to follow.

I know them as "Jefferson Stairs" apparently dating back to and with
some history to Thomas Jefferson/
Here's the unit my [project manager' came up with and fabricated for a
tiny [24X16] timberframe cabin nearing completion in south-central Colorado.

Innovative, nice looking and practical.
I have made similar steps but not with the break in the tread, and I believe
this is the
Jefferson influence?
One set of steps was on a 70 ft. fishing vessel.
