    Get a roller with an extension pole.

    That would not work in my house. The ceilings are far too high.

    Get a ladder and a roller with an extension. Stairwells are not as high as your ceilings.

    No, that would not work. The ceiling on the stairwell is very high... You can't reach it with an extension pole. The house is 100 years old. The ceilings on the middle and top floors are very high and the staircase is not conventional. I would need a scaffold.

    Hire a professional. I hate painting.

    They also have ladders and special staging for those situations, in the event you need to cut in the edges. Check with your local tool rental place to see what they carry. Some of the newer 24 position ladders are very accomodating in those instances.

    Just hire someone to do the job, make it's a whole lot easer.

    Fall down the stair and it wont only be your neck,maybe broken back and a law suit.

    Hire a professional. So worth the extra money.
