Thanks, they are beautiful tiles, and the room, is really nice! I am trying to locate them, and waiting to hear from a distributor. Are the joints 1/8 or 1/16? Thanks again.

How difficult was it to install the stairs? - Is the stair installation difficult and what was the cost of the materials and labor? How long did it take to install?

Hello, and thank you for the question. A signature stair like this becomes more than just a way to communicate between levels. As such, it can become more of a project than a standard carpenter-built stair. It is impossible for us to break out the time involved in this stair as it was so integral with other portions of the project. But the installation was quite straight forward with so few parts: timber treads, steel stringers and steel tabs. The cost is dependent on the type and availability of timber as well as your access to a good steel fabrication shop. Thank you for your interest.

Size of the entry way? - Hi, I love the look of this house! Can you please tell me how big this foyer area is? It looks about 7-8ft from the door to the wall - is that about right? Thanks!!

Hello. Thank you for your question and interest in our work. The entry door in this project is painted Pratt & Lambert "Terra Cotta". It was chosen carefully and in concert with all of the other colors and textures selected for the project to create a cohesive palette. Thanks again.

Spacing - Anyway you can tell me what the space is between the upper and lower staircase (horizontally)? We're putting in similar stairs and we thought we had 12" but now only have 8". We will NOT have the stairs you can see through so I'm very curious what the 8" will look like. Thank you in advance...

Hello. Thank you for your question and interest in our work - although, we're not entirely certain we understand your question. It sounds like you are having a stair installed that is of an entirely different typology than this custom fabricated stair that we designed. Given the greater opacity of your stair, it will be experientially quite different than this composition. That said, if we interpret your question correctly, the gap between stair runs in this project is 12". Thanks again, and best of luck with your work.

Hello. Thank you for your question and interest in our work. This entry system is a "storefront" glass system consisting of aluminum frames with insulated glass lites. Regarding the door, unfortunately we do not know the manufacturer. We'd designed the door with lite and the local lumber company sourced it for us. I trust your local lumber and door company can do the same. Thanks again and good luck with your project.

Hello and thank you for your question. The entry walls are painted Sherwin Williams Toque White SW7003. We recommend selecting your colors in concert with your entire palette for the best and most holistic results. Thanks again, and good luck.

Hello and thank you for your question. The stairs are solid douglas fir timbers. These particular treads are 12" wide by 3.75" thick. Thanks again.

This timber and steel staircase design shows up in a lot of Bruns' projects. It has a solid look and feel but at the same time appears to float. Bench: Design Within Reach

Stair in small area, door with small window slit

Also like this bench. Would be nice on south end of entry
