The Acme-Swan Staircase Kit: Some Assembly Required
The timber framer promised to come back and install stairs for us so that they would match the timber frame. This was in April. Now he has a giant job in Michigan for some horse breeder and we are small fish. So he suggested he would supply the materials and the carpenters could assemble and install it. The carpenters want nothing to do with potentially messing up that fine wood. So guess who is taking on this task in addition to all that past sanding and varnishing and all the future flooring? Yep, the homeowners. The 'kit' arrived magically between Satuday afternoon and Sunday morning one weekend and we began 'assembly' last Saturday.
