I had been hoping to take care of this while they were out of town, but it didn't look like that will be an option.

I have to remove the existing railing, install new tread caps, then install the new railing. I'm figuring on about 3 days for that, and obviously I don't want to risk anyone falling while the work is being done.

Any input/ recommendations would be much appreciated

Attached is the existing

When I was young, all quality homes had two stairs.........
Get more help?
Use OSHA style clamp on guard posts and metal hand rails as needed.
Use old crap for odd spaces as needed.

Who sneaked this turd past the loan and permit people? that is un- insurable as is.

Build a temp stairway about 40 inches over existing right hand stair to top landing.....move to right landing second day....

Yes, you need to provide something...

Can you do it in sections? Limit the amount of temporary barricades and handrails.

And close off access to the stairs during work. Barricade with a sheet of plywood.

Spoke with the homeowners, they are going to vacate the house for the weekend after Thanksgiving so I can have 3 days to get it back together.

I'm not super stoked about working the whole weekend, but it sets my mind at ease not having to worry about getting a temp railing up and secured.

Plus side, 3 days in an empty house to work as many hours as I need to with the music cranked
