Unfortunately he retired. Sorry I can't be of more help. An excellent finish carpenter is hard to find.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to French Doors: Ooh La La
French doors are one of the simple yet intricate details in this landing and downstairs area.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to 8 Therapeutic Benefits of a Family Photo Gallery
Family photos make a statement about what's important to you. Without asking, visitors are aware of the value you place on familial relationships. The display also provides them a more intimate look into your life they may otherwise never encounter.
Here we see two elements that can dress up a stair. One looks functional but isn't, and one looks decorative but performs an important function. On the side of the stringer, below the tread, are carved tread brackets. Though they look like they're holding up the treads, they are applied moldings. If your stairs do not have tread brackets and you want to add some flair, gluing or nailing on brackets is a good DIY project.The wainscoting on the walls is a nice way to follow the line of the stairs on the wall, mimicking the angle of the railing. Because stairs get so much traffic, wainscoting is a good way to protect the walls. Wood paneling will hold up much better than drywall here.
