The Landing Is Done!

The landing is done! YIPPEE! I've already started working on all the bathroom tiles but before I get ahead of myself... the landing is done and I love the steps and rails even though they were very intense. My step does hang over the door a little more than the one in the book. And my steps are a little crooked but I can fix that later. It's not perfect.

The view from the bathroom into the landing doesn't show much but you can really see it best from the window. It was a lot of work but it's the most interesting part of the house architecturally speaking.

I'm not going to tell you the stairs are easy. They take a lot of patience. Just don't give up until they look right. That railing was a pain in the wazoo but eventually with much finagling (and groans of frustration) it came around to my way of thinking... sort of. I still have to straighten a few rungs. :)

The measurements in the book are pretty exact so I need to make a few adjustments like straightening up my top rungs. You can't see them from any angle. I stuck my camera in the living room to get this shot. You will be an expert measurer and rung fixer by the time you finish the landing!

  1. Your stairs look Great to me but I know the struggle that they can present. Good for you for sticking to it and getting it done! I love this upper hall too! I Just purchased Lea's book last week and thoroughly enjoying it! :D
