Stairs Upgrade That Shows Craftsmanship Pays!

Eric Doherty of Doherty Home Improvement in Taunton MA, has shared his latest project with us: “It started off as a spiral stair case and I took them out and installed a conventional stair case.” And in doing so he made this a true feature of the space.

“We used WindsorONE 5/4×10 for the risers and skirt boards. We also used WindsorONE Shiplap to accent the stair case. With white oak hand rails and 5/4 treads.”

We’re seeing more of these stain grade accents against a backdrop of shiplap, and Eric has installed it on this project with stunning results; Another case study in Craftsmanship Pays. The mix of materials and lines blend so seamlessly, check the photos and details below:

Blind nailing the treads so no nail heads show. Adding that gap detail to the hand rails to match the gap in the shiplap.
Note the detail work on the skirt and S4S details around the shiplap & ceiling. These stairs are like a piece of fine furniture in the home. Nice touch with the door for storage under the stairs!
The shiplap look continues to the floor above.

Thank you Eric for choosing to Build America by selecting WindsorONE, and thanks to Brad Dumas and the team at Mozzone Lumber for supplying the material!
