I have a quick question concerning proper spacing for the posts for staircases & banisters! The previous owner had them set at 7" 1/2 & 6" 1/2 (L shape) in the hallway and 4" 1/2 on the stairs. This represents a safety concern for us, since our first chid is due this summer.
I was wondering what would be considered as proper spacing for the posts. I'm leaning towards 5" or 5" 1/2, what do you think?
