No - not in the house. There are stairs outside going from the deck to the yard, where the entrance to the basement is.

Ayup. I absolutely loathe going up and down stairs, and yet we just purchased a 3-story townhouse. Ah well, I guess the excercise will be good for me, as long as my knees hold up....

Yes. Circular stair to basement. Steps up to both front and back doors. Front lower than back. Back steps just three. Front steps fourteen. Circular stair inside is just a smallish (in diameter) metal one. Nothing fancy, but takes up minimal floor space both up and down.

We have steps up to the porches, and stairs down to the basement.

I have cellar stairs and stair to the second floor. The stairs to the second floor are uneven in height and people who aren't used to them tend to stumble.

Circular staircase in the middle of the house, with thirteen steps going up and thirteen down. Makes an eye-shape when you look down from the top. All feng shuied out.

I agree, "Why?"
But, to answer your question, we live in a tri-level so it's half a flight up to the upstairs bedroom level & half a flight down to the lower family-room level. There's steps off the back deck and one step to the front-door from the walkway.
(Two steps down into the garage to be really anal...)

No steps outside - what was 1 step is now a ramp. :D
1 step into garage or den - both areas rarely used.

I could respond the way I'm supposed to respond, but then how could we keep the password protected?

I live in a two-story townhouse, so yeah, I have stairs. They're at a fairly low slope (about 35°), so the climb isn't as hard as it might be on other stairs. They're the "open" kind of stairs, that is, no vertical slats in between each step. I've never thought to count the number of steps, and I'm not home right now to count them, but it seems there are probably 13-14 steps, not counting the landings.

...but at least you can edit your messages, to fix things like stupid codeing mistakes!
Two sets of stairs to the second story - one regular and the other spiral. Five steps up to the front door and two up to the back door. :cool:

The pusher bot is inferior.
Split level. So lot's of short stairways. The odd thing is that they are all 7 steps. Even the ones on the outside and the lot slopes quite a bit. So regardless of elevation covered, 7 steps. Someone was into numerology or something.
And of course The Thing I Need Right Now is 3 flights away at all times.

Yes, fout sets, actually. Stairs that go down from the garage to the family room, stairs that go down from the family room to the basement, stairs that go up from the family room to the kitchen/living room, and stairs that go from the living room to the bedrooms.

We have a couple steps up the deck to the house, and an EVIL stairway to the second floor. We don't go up there unless absolutely necessary. They're the super shallow, super steep kind of stairs -- almost like a ladder, actually. My son's room was up there. Kids can handle it better than us geezers. Some day I'm going to have that stairway removed and put a better one in.
