    Where can I get more information on the slide/staircase construction and materials?

    J Richard Watson Construction Company, Inc.

    The slide/staircase was based on the homeowners' vision and brought to life by our company and interior designer, Variations Designs, working with several talented parties. Jon Laymon Studios of Clermont, FL designed and built the slide. Stairmasterz of Orlando built the staircase, with the staircase ironwork fabricated by Custom Iron Works of Deland, FL.

    This photo and next by Taylor Architectural Photography5. Fun Alternative in FloridaWhy walk down the stairs when you can take the slide? That’s what these fun-loving homeowners in Orlando, Florida, thought. So they made their childhood dreams come true and had a slide built alongside the curved staircase in their new home. “It would have been much easier to just buy a slide and incorporate it into the design of the house,” says Rick Watson, president of J. Richard Watson Construction. “But we wanted the entire stairwell to have a wow factor — almost as if you have a mini amusement park in the home.”A lot of planning went into the project to ensure that it was safe and fit into the design of the home. The designers took into consideration the speed that someone would come down the slide to provide a nice landing at the bottom. They also considered the height of the slide so that someone could not reach out and grab the stair railing. Aesthetically, the design team didn’t want the slide to be the main focus as people approach the stairs. “We want people to admire the stairs and then get excited by the idea of a slide inside the house,” Watson says. Walls: The windows along the ceiling line add color to the otherwise brown-and-black space. These windows were formed with the bottoms of glass bottles and jars in different colors and sizes. Thanks to a stained-glass technique, they come together to create a whimsical, textured window. Furniture: The furniture at the bottom stays completely out of the way of the slide. The design team tucked the table and plant into the curve and along the straight edge of the wall. The table gives the homeowners a spot to display a few items at the bottom of the stairs.

    This staircase not only offers up the grand entrance moment, but even better, it also offers up a “whee!” moment, for that is a curved slide running next to it. Be sure to check out the view from the top.
