ANOTHER PROJECT OFF THE LIST...

The finished project

The view down the 17 stairs
View up the stairs with my favourite window and the fish Jodie gave me.

The Master, doing what he does best...





We finished the stairway today and we are very pleased with the result. We aren't the fastest at getting projects done - there always seems to be something else to do like ice fishing, darts, dinner with friends etc. But, we started work last week - I got the wood varathaned and Rejean did the cutting and design. I know my limitations and I know Rejean's talents - we work well together. We had to blend the upstair's darker wood with the lighter pine that is being used on the main floor. We left the railing we had originally made with Hemlock from the property, as well as the octagonal window that contains a fish that Jodie gave me years ago. These two items are in the darker stain wood. Rejean designed the ceiling - it is the same design (on a smaller scale) that we will use on the ceiling in the main room - I like it. We have two large ceiling fans that will be placed as the light fixture was in the vestibule with a square made out of the light pine - and, in case you noticed and wondered, the actual stairs and floor will be done last - when everything else is done. We know what we are going to do - the stairs will be done in oak in the same ebony stain that the cabinetry is being done in. But, that is another project...
See Ya Bye
