An oak staircase can be built in the staircase hotspot of the Dungeon, Quest Hall, and Skill Hall in a player-owned house. It requires 27 Construction, 10 oak planks, and 4 steel bars to build. When built, it earns the player 680 experience.

Building non-spiral stairs to face the right direction is very difficult. By default, "down" stairs go away from the door the first room was built from, but "up" stairs go towards the door the room was first built from (i.e. wrong way around). To get the stairs you want, you'll have to build the room from the correct direction first. This is not explained properly in the Game Guide.

The other complications associated with staircases involve adding rooms, or changing the staircase.

A staircase added to a Skill Hall on the regular level will prompt you to build it "Up" or "Down". When building an "Up" staircase, then attempting to climb the staircase, the construction interface will ask if you want to add a room at the top of the staircase. The rooms available at the top are either a Quest Hall or a Skill Hall. If you build a "Down" staircase, you have an additional option of building a dungeon stairs room downstairs.

When changing staircases, the problems become greater, since rooms connected to the staircase must first be removed. This is a very poor interface decision on Jagex's part, since it makes staircase upgrades much more expensive and difficult than other construction. Note, too, that there are cases where one of a house's staircases has been removed, and more than one staircase in that house has disappeared.
