Gate in stair railing.


How do you make a gate in the middle of a staircase to go off to a side access area - through a stair railing; trying to preserve the angle of the original stair railing? I live in a very steep slope environment.

Do you have a picture of the place you want to do this? If you do post it and tell us a little more about what you are trying to do.

I was unable to post a picture but uploaded it here. As you can see it is quite steep. The hope is to create access to the back of the house in order to put up hurricane shutters!

Looking at the picture, I really don't see a way to make an operable gate or a way to swing the rail as to make an opening. You may be able to make a removable section, if that would work for you. Be aware it may not be safe stepping off the steps onto soil that is slopped as shown in the picture.
