The advantage of the skirt over the housed stringer (see 217B) is the ease of construction. A disadvantage is the potential for minor opening of butt joints at the ends of treads and risers due to minor movement of the structure. A more involved hybrid strategy that limits this disadvantage is to install the risers first from wall to wall, cut out the stringers to fit to the risers, and finally install the treads tightly between the stringers.

Подпись: HOUSED STRINGER AT FINISH WALL Подпись: The housed stringer is a more refined and complicated way than the skirt (see 217A) to provide a finish stringer at the side of a continuously supported stairway. The advantage of the housed stringer is that joints between treads, risers, and finish stringer will not open up with shrinkage or other minor movement of the structure. Disadvantages include the extra labor to build the housed stringer and the fact that it does not provide the framing for a temporary construction stair. Good- quality prefabricated stairs (see 213C) are also made with housed stringers.

The balustrade is framed like a standard wall (except that the base must be anchored like a newel post to resist lateral forces (see 215B). The stairway may be finished simply on both sides with finish stringers.

CARRIAGE

MAx. SpACE 4 IN. To 6 in. (verify with local code)

The freespanning stair usually has a structural carriage to which the balusters may be attached. This arrangement allows the balusters themselves to be the structural support for the handrail. A newel post, if used, would typically be attached to the side of the structural carriage in the same fashion as the balusters.
