Exploring Home Repair Materials and Tools

Hello everyone, my name is Mabel Abram. My home was recently vandalized when I was out of town for a couple weeks. Upon returning home, I was shocked to see graffiti on the walls and flooring ripped up. I called a local contractor to give me a bid on the work. I elected to have the materials restored to their original state by the contractor. The job required replacement of some of the support materials, including floor joists and drywall. I want to lead people through the process of repairing damage to their home through this website. My site will teach people about building materials and tools used for repair and remodel jobs. I will also talk about material upgrades you can use for your floors, walls and ceilings. Thank you.

Three Staircase Options To Consider For Your Tiny Home

Vanessa Stevens

Having a custom tiny home built requires you to have every element of the home made to fit within the home. One of the most difficult elements to create within a tiny home is a staircase to use. The guide below walks you through a few options to consider when having a staircase created for you to use inside of your tiny home.

Consider a Folding Staircase

There are foldable staircases that can be created by having each stair mounted to the wall individually. A string or wire is fed through the outer edges of each step. When you pull the string out toward the center of the home, the steps will pull free from the wall. When you want to open the staircase, all you do is push the stairs against the wall as you go down them. This allows you to make the most of the space in your home and still be able to easily get to the second floor when needed.

Consider a Traditional Staircase with Storage

A traditional staircase can be created in your tiny home, as well. The staircase will need to be more narrow than a staircase you will find in a normal sized home, but under the stairs, you can have shelves or cabinets built to create additional storage options in the space. The staircase will be mounted to the floor and wall, so that it doesn't move as you climb up and down the stairs.

Consider a Spiral Staircase

A spiral staircase is a great option for a tiny home because it takes up such a small amount of space in the home. A spiral staircase can be made from metal, wood, or even PVC to create the exact look you want in the home. Be sure that your spiral staircase has a railing on it to ensure that you do not topple off of the staircase as you travel on the stairs.

Once you have considered all of the staircases that are available to you, you will need to meet with a designer to figure out which staircase option will best suit your needs, the space available, and your budget. It is important to be willing to listen to the suggestions the designer provides you to ensure that you are able to have a staircase that is highly functional, visually appealing, and affordable.
