New front staircase

A one-story Craftsman bungalow was raised to create a two story house. The front bedroom was opened up to create a staircase connecting the two floors.

Unfortunately, I don't know any details on the desk, as it was something the owner already had. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Thanks for getting back to me, do you have more picture of this stairs. a retired friend of my fathers is going to make it for me and he was wondering how the handrail was centered on the newl post when the spindles are outside of the string? any help you could give would be great - would it be better if i contacted you over the phone or on your own website directly?

Unfortunately, I do not have any additional images. This is a custom design and I can't really give you more information without providing design services for your project. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful; there may be local contractors (or even lumber supply stores) that may be able to help you design and configure your stair to the space you have.

Hi, thank you for inquiring. This was a clear-finished douglas fir railing, custom-built for this project.

The owner provided the paint colors, so we don't have them on file. Benjamin Moore has really nice selections in yellow-green, so it might be worth looking through their selection. It is a color that is really affected by light, both natural and artificial, so I recommend that you paint large swatches in several locations before committing to a color. Good luck!

Or you could try one of our pattern cut wood grilles, that can also be custom stained or painted. They are a little more decorative then the Worth ones I think you are referring to, and come in several styles to match different decors.
