comment How can I convert a closed stringer staircase to an open stringer staircase?
@Shak: If you are going to replace the treads, install a new banister/handrail and install one or two additional open stringers - aren't you 90% of the way to removing the entire staircase and installing a complete new one?

comment Wiring from Oven to Switch
@Chris: See reference above. It's complicated but I think you need to route in the other direction, up across down.

comment What prevents the water from flowing in a 13mm garden hose?
How did you attach your 13mm/15mmm hose to the 40mm connector? Also a diagram of the non-working setup might help.

comment Importance of Following Procedure
So long as you understand the basic way the lumber needs to be shaped and assembled, I imagine you could ignore the written procedure and set-to with a hand-saw, hand-drill, a few sheets of sandpaper and several cans of beer. It's a rustic seat, not a Louis XIV sofa. You could just make two perpendicular cuts with a hand saw. If its 1/4" out it will just add to the charm.

Shopping assistance, product recommendations, or brand specific advice are considered off-topic. ;)

comment What happens when you test a smoke detector?
+1 for "making sure the battery is not dead" which is almost certainly the most likely cause of failure.
