Stair Remodel

Stairs to a new attic conversion were designed to work with the home as the vertical connector of 3 floors. All of the railing materials in the 1903 home were made from framing removed and salvaged for the stairwell - clear, vertical grain Douglas Fir and redwood from some used doors -- all with a natural Tung Oil finish.

The stairwell before from 1st to second floor. On the right is a bedroom closet that was modified to make way for the stair to the attic. Note the painted surfaces -- all stripped in the remodel -- and the use of a 3/4 cut wooden dowel for a bullnose corner. (Original 1903 plasterwork).
