Stairwell Set

The stairway to the loft was installed this week, it's made from 4" thick pine and took 6 people to lift in to place. The main stairs end at a raised landing on the first floor and then there is one additional stair to the main floor level. Railing material for the stairway and loft is on site and the railings will be constructed to fit the stairs as set. We'll be using 6"x6" pine posts to support the railings and the pickets will be over 2" square, will get pictures of the railings once it's set. The holes for the bolts that secure the stair treads will be plugged with a pine dowel once the stair work is completed.

Donna and I visited the house on Saturday to bring her up to date on all the progress, she enjoyed using the stairs to reach the second level instead of ladders. Our dog, Jazzie made her first trip to the upper floors as well.

Here's a picture.
