    Hi Alisa- This staircase was custom built in a local mill work shop. The design was based on the original staircase from the 1890's. It had to be updated to today's code requirements for baluster spacing, handrail height and handrail shape. We worked hard to keep the proportions right so it honored the original! So unfortunately, these stair parts aren't available "off the shelf" from a lumberyard. But, thank you for your interest.
