A stairway to the Second Floor
This is an example of a typical nepali staircase. They are usually located right after the entrance. In the traditional houses, the first floors were used to shelter animals or only to store food because the moisture barrier used to be insufficientto provide sufficient thermal comfort for the humans. These stairs used the the woodagrath and they were as durable as the house. Needless to say thestairs had a locking system instead of nails. Its a tabooin Nepal tostand underastair case. Anythoughts on why it is so?
