|Original stairs that came with the project|
Here are some of the design requirements.
- Easily traverse stairs up and down, whether person faces fore or aft.
- Steps wide enough for size twelve feet
- Steps must seem natural
- Must not interfere with adjacent dinette settee access
- Easy access for our four legged family members (dogs).
So I set out building some stairs...
|First Stairs Test: FAIL. Too wide, step rise too high.|
|Second stairs test: GOOD. Ok for my big feet. Closer to dimensional constraints.|
|Second stairs test, looking down from cockpit.|
Already we have some ideas as to how the stairs can be integrated into a future cabinet that will be behind the stairs. But for now we will live with this until Stairs V3.0.
