Entry Stairs

• Removed “builder’s special” oak and painted railings and carpet

  1. Built new alder stairs and railings

  2. Milled custom shoe rail to maintain consistent style

  3. Simple pattern of iron balusters adds elegance without being “fussy”

• Added skirtboard on right side to balance out stairway

• Insulated with recycled cotton insulation under stairs to dampen sound

  1. Stained alder a rich, reddish brown to contrast harmoniously with existing oak floors while looking classy on its own
