Re: Stairs: Artistic or Fatalistic?

My very first thought is that some grandchild is going to beak a leg.  You know they are going to jump off as high as they dare.

A very excellent staircase for a CAT. Not only do they nearly always land on their feet if they fall, but they also have 9 lives.

Is this in the United States?  I wouldn't think they would meet building codes anywhere in the U.S.

The whole scene color-wise really appeals to my eye.

The staircase is a (you are right) fatality waiting to happen, so I’d add some rails!

I love the look but would be afraid to walk on them.  And I think most building codes require handrails on stairs, so I wonder how these folks get away without them.

I’d like it better if the stairs had rails. I guess the bedroom is upstairs?
