My situation is this.
I have a smallish log home in the mountains. There is a circular staircase that i assume meets code to the second floor. The circular staircase eats up quite a large chunk of the downstairs living room. (poor disign) My tow questions are:
1. If I move the circular stair case to the outside and put a deck off the loft would that make the space compliant.
2. Then I would build a steep or alternating stair case near the wall from the interior side. Rise is 9 feet run is 8 feet
Would this meet code since there was one coded staircase?
