what is a standard or even a comfortable width for a set of stairs. i am starting to think of the stairs in my future home that will be built next year. they will be a very open modern design with a wall on one side and rail on the other. i believe i saw on a code sheet that the minimum would be 36". this seems like it could feel kinda tight. i was thinking at least 42"
i am gonna sketch my idea for the stairs in sketchup because that is a totally different question....whether my idea is veasible.
thanks for any help
