Steep stair options

Brettny, the different tread width was an attempt to stretch the length of the run from the landing to the loft. I know that landings are usually square but making it 32 by 30 gave me 2 more inches and an even 9in run.

Late last night I had an off-the-wall sort of thought. This is to access an occasional use space.
Build the main, upper section of steps the normal way down to a more or less normal landing, not a winder. A little smaller than a normal landing maybe. Build the lower section set of steps with a hinged joint where they fit onto the landing. Fold the lower section up onto the landing when the upper area is not in use. That clears the main floor area.

This is why I love this forum. Everyone has an opinion and they offer good and honest suggestions on how to approach the problem. It's hard to go wrong no matter what design you choose.

I too love multiple opinions. It's too easy to get tunnel vision and only see 1 path.
ICC, I'm going to think on that and do some math. Thank you

I wanted to share the end product of my stairs. My father in law was a huge help this last weekend and we built the stairs. They came out 8in rise, 9in run with the winder landing and they feel good going up and down.
I am working on ideas for a railing next.

Great. Being comfortable in use is important.

The middle pic has an optical illusion, sure looks like a 'stairs to nowhere'; lol.
