Curious on thoughts about design extending House front stairs outwards on top of existing concrete structure. : HomeImprovement

Hi there, I am in the process of closing in on an OLD home (1894), one of the issues that came up when we did our home inspection is that the current front stairway is rather small and has no hand-railing on either side.

To counter those problems I am looking at the idea of extending the stairs outwards 18 inches on each side, driving posts in on the outside corners and keeping the inner section supported using the structure of the original stairs.

Curious what peoples thoughts are on the design and if something like it would be feasible or not..

Thank you!
