Installing a Platform Stair Egress Out of My Basement

Home Renovations

I recently moved into a new home, but it is in need of a lot of renovations. I will blog about my renovating experience on HIVE to share my journey and to earn some cryptocurrency to help offset some material costs.

One of the first little projects I completed was a new platform stair egress leading into/out of the basement. The existing set of stairs was completely deteriorated. I demolished the wood structure as you can see below.


Once the doorway was clear, I leveled out the surrounding area to make sure the new stair landing had a flat surface to sit. I left a 2x4 attached beneath the door saddle as an anchoring point for the new platform.


I fastened square sheets of plywood down to four 4x4's to create a sturdy platform. I combined four of these together to create the stairs, using 2x6's and a 2x12 to tie them together. Overall, I am very satisfied with the way it came out. I will put some outdoor carpeting on top surface to create a non-slip grip for the snow. It's very sturdy and it gets the job done, making it much easier to come in and out of the house through the basement door.
