Hello all!

I am looking for some instructions on how to construct and install new steps into my basement. I purchased my first home, built around 1957, and the basement steps are on their last leg. I would like to construct a new set. Thank you for any pointers!

    Hi Andrew, the big box stores actually have pre-made stairs for re-dos. But if you want to tear the whole thing out, I've attached the codes.

    Good Luck!
