When we redo the back stair of our house, I want to replace the existing (originally exterior, rough, painted, wood) staircase with a steel staircase with open-riser treads. For light, for visual space, for coolness. Except...
Today, I had to carry Monkeyfish up two flights of an open-riser steel staircase, because:
- the stairs looked "old,"
- the stairs looked "super creepy," and
- the stairs looked "too wide open."
