My new adage is “calculate twice, cut once” rather than “measure twice, cut once.”
Mike came over and helped me build some new basement stairs. The old stairs were crooked and wobbly causing them to shake when you descended into the basement. The treads were also rather short causing half my foot to hang off the step when going downstairs.
The ultimate goal for the basement is to make it comfortable enough that I can relocate my computer stuff down there when our office becomes another bedroom.
Here are some pics of the before, during, and after.
