I met with a builder and took a look at some land and it looks like i need a walkout basement.  That being said any suggestions on where i could put them in this plan?

I assume I start in the basement and add them and they will auto connect to 1st floor?

The only logical spot for the stairs is where you placed them...but they were on the first floor...I built them from the basement and was able to fit them in but they are a bit steep (they meet code in Michigan where rise max is 8.25" and run minimum is 9"). I do not know what Maine"s stair code allows...

 

Adding enough width to the area at the stair bottom to accommodate 1 more step would make the stair legal in most places...an additional foot or so would allow for 11" treads and 7.5" rise...

 

While the stair works, the stair well narrows the living room considerably...I did not spend any time making the stair case pretty...that's your job..

 

Hope this helps...

 

Regards

Rick
