stairs part 2 bookshelf staircase


has anyone have exp building this as a basement staircase? it's a 97 year old house and building code can't possibly apply since it's only 6'2 tall. my question is how difficult is this to build and will it be stable? looks like it should be more solid than the standard staircase as the entire weight sits on a larger area on the ground. thanks

If you rebuild a staircase you could be required to meet todays code
Building codes still apply
Existing work is grandfathered in most cases
