No it's not, against code if you do not have railings, but that is all. It is mostly an insurance thing, but if you can afford such a stairway you can afford the insane premiums any insurance company is going to charge for such a stairwell without railings. If you have the time and money you can get exemptions to much of the building code and outside of the metros the code tends to be much more lax, in rural areas it is often non existant for single family home, most counties can not afford to send an inspector out to the sticks for every little thing and only check the big things like utility hookups.

I do not believe they are all out against code in any state for single family homes, perhaps in some counties/cities. In my experience they just have limits on how much a tread can taper over a given length and minimum and maximum width.

Gave a quick look, can not find anywhere where they are outright illegal, few places do not allow them as the only/main stairwell but will allow them as a secondary.
>>

Montreal is known for it's winding stairs. They're everywhere but are now illegal to build because they're so fucking dangerous. People constantly slip on ice and eat shit in them. Still, they are so beautiful. It's just a shame to think that someday we won't have our beautiful, impossible to move furniture, windy staircases with knee-high railings.

Apparently they ran out of EPS for a smaller area while doing the roof, just filled what was missing with earth and never told anyone. Firm that was responsible for it could not be made accountable, because it gone bankrupt earlier.

If you ninny's would look and pay attention, you'd see that the ceiling is coming donw because there was obviously a WALL there under that beam.

Which, while that big huge cut is less than optimal, when there was a wall underneath it was supported and the load was carried.

It's pretty clear someone got the idea to "open plan" a remodel and took out the load bearing wall under that I-beam and part of the drywall ceiling without investigating.

You can tell I'm right by the 2 different ceiling materials, the tell-tale where the drywall stops is paper tape where the ceiling drywall met the wall drywall

you cannot look at >>1626545 and determine ANYTHING about the design and construction of the roof. I paint american houses, and the shit materials they use rot all the damn time, but I've never seen a roof failure, because framing, sheathing, and roofing are easy to do correctly. There is the occasional leak due to an ice dam on a complex roof, but in general, roofs don't fail due to being unstable. What do you mean by that anyway.

Judging by that slope, I'm betting it doesn't snow a lot there.
What exactly is your problem with wood rafters? The osb strapped to the side is just reinforcement and probably not 100 percent necessary for structure. But hey, I'm not a structural engineer and neither are you.

The monstrosity of 100 year old shit. It's actually sturdy. The front is just rotting from the shit siding. They recently cut trusses to stand up in some of it and the roof is bowed a bit. Pretty soon going to jack it back up and rais all the rafters to 8'. But i want to reinforce it as i go and build shelves alall of the way around it. I have given up trying to level everything and put support posts up and stuff. I'm just attacking it with a framing gun and a truckload of lumber so i can make it a storage shed and pack my shit in it. I'll unhoarder all my shit from 3 moves and a garage destruction over winter. Siding is all shit but vinyl is cheap and new on the house i bought next to it. Most of it's ground level and i can get a buddy up high. Roof should be good for close to 10 years. Gives me time to get shit in order sobi can rent it out and move a little more /out sometime.

All of this pipe nonsense if fucking going too.

And I'm shoveling rock down for a floor until i can afford the time and effort to concrete it.

Father in law was kind enough to give me 3 new double paned windows he had for the shitty broken one i have atm.

Itll be alright once i get some sgit done and get the winter to get it insulated and fixed up.

Or just leave it a storage shack. I dont know yet.

It depends on how much shit i descide to keep and how much i want to give away or toss. Too much other shit going on to worry about it

There is nothing wrong with Wood and Engineered wood products. They have plenty of strength, especially for residential construction. Most problems arise in wood homes from contractors not doing proper jobs with weatherproofing, and even then it still lasts 10's of years at least before any problems arise. As well, wood construction is faster, cheaper, and issues with wood structures are MUCH easier to remediate than concrete or masonry.

Also engineered wood I joists like that hold a substantial amount, especially considering the spacing. Stop sperging out about wood.
