Wood - Could you please tell me what wood was used? Does it get slippery when wet? How long will it last and does it need any type of maintenance (stains, etc)? Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amy Renea added this to Small Details Make a Big Statement
How about this outdoor staircase? It is a utilitarian walkway, but the homeowners elevated its design. They could easily have made each stair tread a plank of wood, but instead, every other tread is special. Turning the wood vertically and chopping it up into sections creates a stairway that's unique and full of personality.
