Can I extend the height to 125"/130"?

You cannot achieve that height with a 12 tread Rome. That height is achievable with a 13 or 14 tread Rome (please reference Model numbers 68300-2 and 68300-3)

Really great product. The design is so smart, and the installation is relatively easy. It takes muscle and some construction sensibility, but installed according to the directions in about a half day. We were missing a couple of lag bolt anchors, and the edge of 1 stair tread was scuffed, but other than that, all was in great condition. Railing takes another half day for installation.

Excellent compact, modular stair

We purchased the Dolle Rome 12 step package for our tiny cabin, to replace a ladder that looked interesting but was not functional. The 11 step package is standard, and 12 steps means you get the base package and an extra step. Packaging was pretty good, with only a few scuffs and scrapes out of the box. The package was heavy, but rather compact. Should fit in most SUVs if you can lift it. Overall install is pretty basic if you are careful, and take your time. Not rocket science, but not simple either. Total install took two full half days, perhaps could be done in a day. The instructions are terrible. Perhaps all the info is there, but it will have instructions like "install the railing" and that's it, with a picture. My wife and I alternately laughed and cried at how ridiculously lacking the instructions were. Installing the first tread is super simple. Just screw it into your header after measuring thrice. The second tread is where it gets interesting. An aside: there is a tap in the bag of hardware. This is for the treads. Use the two to clear the threads for all five set screws before you install them. It took me a bit to figure this out, but things go together so much easier if the threads are clear. With your height measurement, start setting treads. The angles can be difficult, for example, how are you supposed to measure off a 22.5 degree angle in mid air? I resorted to trigonometry and SIN(22.5) x width and then measured off the wall. It worked. The best advice I read in other reviews was level each tread as you go. And this is critically good advice. Level up each tread. Support them as shown. The rest of the instructions here are good. Installing wood treads is well described, but the railing takes a bit of artistry. The best advice I can give for the railing is to install and measure the various pieces with blue masking tape holding the railings in place. It works very well and helps you get the measurements just right before you make any cuts. For some of the complex bends, you may need to use two swivels between a post ... and that's ok. The Dolle Rome stairs look very nice when you are done. We are quite pleased with this purchase, and can't say enough good things about the solid, quality construction. Really a nice addition to our cabin.

Great quality stairs. I would like treads to be bit wider, but still good enough for amount of space it takes.
