We have a small Victorian terrace, two up two down type with two central single layer brick walls housing our staircase.
We want to turn the stairs around so they go up to the hallway instead of both the bedrooms.
The problem is that in renewing the stairs we will have to comply with building regulations to do this, and our stairs do not comply at present.
Does anyone know anyway around this problem? We dont really want half the staircase coming into either of the rooms downstairs but we will have a quarter circle at the bottom to gain some height, unfortuately not enough though.
I have thought about using the materials from the old stair case and getting planning permission to do this, not sure if it will make any difference though?
