The floors are hickory and were finished on site, so there isn't a record of the color of stain.

Are there other photographs of this house? - Does this staircase belong to the chadsworth home plan by Visbeen architects? I would love to see more photos of the Chadsworth.

There are more photographs of this home, it is called Sunset View. They are up here on as well as our website - > gallery > residential projects > estates. Unfortunately, the Chadsworth was a conceptual design that was never built, so we do not have photos of it. Let me know if I can be of assistance in any other way!

did you use undercarpet if so how thick?

No, there is no padding under the carpet runner. The key to a good installation is when the carpet is tucked and attached to the underside of the lip of the stair.

The painter we use, Tom Hedke of Hedke Painting, suggests Benjamin Moore 1590 Paper White.

Unfortunately, we do not have the final records and cannot assure that original specs were followed.
