I have a 1930s 3 bed semi with a straight staircase. This leaves me with a tiny bathroom at the top and I propose to turn the top 3 stairs to the right to create a dog leg.
I have had numerous carpenters and joiners out all tell me different things!!
One said this is perfectly possible and that he can turn the top 3 and alter the bulkhead to accomodate the new stairs.
Another man said - i would have to move the whole staircase forward and loose space downstairs to create winder stairs at the top - not ideal as my front door wouldnt open fully!!
Unfortunately I'm on a budget and the 1st option is much more apealing, but i'm worried about safety - will it weaken the stairs or is this feesable?
Has anyone done this to existing stairs before?
Any advise is greatly appreciated!!
