If you look at where the spindles line up with the wainscoting you'll notice that the two ends line up with the last banisters on each end and the middle spindle is exactly in line with the middle trim. I've done more measuring and double checking this weekend than I have in a long time!
|Hard to see, but I drew in a rough sketch of the design first.|
|Couple of pieces up.|
|See? It all fits together!|
|Bottom stair torn out. The left and right stringers needed to get extended to make it all fit better.|
|You can see the stringer extensions and the riser all cut from 5/4 stock.|
|Still need some trim on the sides, but mostly done. Much better than it was!|
|All done! Don't mind that little gap at the bottom, trust me.|
I dug up some old photos for a great before and after series of the stairwell and what used to be two small bedrooms, but is now our flex room plus mudroom.
|View of the old two bedrooms.|
|After demo and walls opened up.|
|Reconfigured to current day. Ignore the chop saw and various tools on the floor!|
