The rail is custom fabricated from common iron stair parts and then powder coated. I suggest you contact a metal fabricator that does stair work.

My company can build one for you if you are local to Denver. If not, most millwork shops or even a reasonably handy finish carpenter can do the job.

How did you make the little roof/awning?

We placed blocking behind the drywall, toe nailed the false rafters into that. Then we installed 1x poplar as roof sheathing and used cedar shim shingles for the roofing. We kept it minimal so as not to overwhelm the rest of the basement. - just enough for the little ones to use their imagination.

Thank you! Love it, and love the dutch door too. We are working on a playhouse under our basement stairs and this is what I had in mind.

We used 8/4 poplar for the rail and stile. Biscuit joined corners. The T&G panel sets into a dado in the rail and stile. The hardware is a ball catch.

Sorry, I simply don't know. The duck was provided by the owner and not part of our work or design.

The duck was part of FAO Schwartz's collection for many years but they don't seem to be carrying it anymore unfortunately.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Boost privacy. Many builder-grade houses contain hollow-core doors. These doors have a real-looking wood grain but are made up only of ¼-inch-thick parts, and are essentially cardboard and air inside. While hollow-core doors can be fine for certain rooms, I try to use solid-core doors for the bathroom to keep the bathroom experience as much of a one-person affair as possible. Solid-core doors deaden the sounds created in the bathroom. So if you're having a book club meeting or poker night down there, a solid door and insulated wall framing that both deaden sound are nice for everybody.
