Three story log sweeping staircase

The 42 foot tall tree supports the single stringer stairs. The railings serve as trusses to provide strength and stability to each log tread. The railings were all built in place.

Greg, it seems that you and I have similar tastes.  I hadn't noticed the displaced tiles, but I agree it just adds to the great effect.  We are also having a spiral staircase in our house, the centre being a 600mm diameter douglas fir that was growing on a bank.  Consequently one of its roots  is massive and horizontal.  This root is going to be the third step!  I like Tim Bullocks way of fixing the treads with a big pipe, which is way better than the method I was going to use.

I really like how the tile is broken up around the base, like it grew out of the flooring, nice touch. I've been wondering what type of tree I would use, hickory is very nice.

Yes indeed, I'm gonna try something similar inside my cabin.
