I've designed (many) and built 2 complete staircases, and still remember a
carpenter friend insisting that they had to be done this ONE WAY.  My first
stairway came out amazing (wish I had photos) and the second one did a 180 on a
landing due to space constraints - done on the cheap before the whole house got
sucked into that Poltergeist vortex....

Great work and excellent improvements.  They are right - this will be an instant
classic.   Have you tried making one big plane or other geometries?
