Alright, so I'm currently building a large structure (its a tower at the moment, but when its done it'll be more than just a tower), and Im having a problem deciding how to do a staircase between the floors. My first thought was to have a spiral staircase, but it'd look a bit strange just sitting there. So what I'd like to do is do a staircase going around the walls of the tower. The only problem with that is that I don't quite know how to do such (its a 26x26 tower, so there are no guides on it that I can find) Might I get some help, advice, perhaps a guide on how to do this?

Sorry, I couldn't hear you over the sound of how awesome minecraft is.
3x3 area. Make a pillar in the middle of the 3x3 area you want the staircase to be. Place stair blocks directly next to the pillar, on each side, travelling clockwise or counter clockwise depending on which way you want your stairs to twist, then place blocks in the corners. This makes a seamless spiral staircase. You could also do it in a 5x5 area using blocks and slabs. On each side of the pillar in the middle, place a T-shape the the top of the T facing away from the pillar (so if you were looking down at it, the T looks like it is sitting on the pillar, standing upright). Now fill in the gaps between each "T" with a slab. Simple. It's better for larger spiral staircases, and it also takes away the feeling of being in such a tight enclosed space, since you get a 2-block wide area to walk in, while the 3x3 gives you a very low 1-block wide area to walk in.
