A reader's General Construction question: Cheap steps?
Leigh Mac. from the marsh, Australia had this Cheap steps question.Hi Bill, do you get confused with Bob? He's maybe a bit younger, not sure but...
In our 7X14X3.4m shed we're putting a mezzanine up one end in one 3.5m bay. Didn't get the steel shed people to supply flooring, handrail or stair, thinking I might be able to build cheaper in timber... again, not sure but !
Bill's replyHi Leigh,
Thanks for that Bill.
No 2 son has a little gasless mig that I can use so that's good. Might put the bite on a few local brickies see if I can get hold of some old scaffolding. Do building regs actually specify details for stairs or handrail?
PS. Re: Bob the Builder. I did a job at a large pre school once and was the star attraction at playtimes. It took a while before they stopped calling me Bob and changed to Bill the builder.
I tried to register "Bill the builder" as my
website name, but that Bob had all the similar sounding names
reserved. I just can't compete, he's so good.
