Finished Bottom Stairway - Split Landing Staircase

Here's a good picture of the bottom section of the completed stairway. The treads and risers are nailed on correctly and everything looks square. Make sure that you check the distance between the edge of the stair treads and the wall framing to make sure that you have at least a space large enough to slip the drywall in between the stairs in the walls safely.

If you're using half inch drywall, you could always use a piece of 5/8 plywood as a drywall spacer. If this space is too big after the drywall is installed, you could have a problem finishing the stairway, if you're using carpeting.
