|Ugly Carpet, Squeaky Stairs|
|Not one of the treads was made with a single board. No wonder |
the darned things squeaked and felt wobbly!!
|Hey, let's just use leftover 2 x 4s!!|
The treads weren't actually treads...they were made of scrap wood left over from the initial construction of our home.
|Ooh, yeah, let's use leftover particle board siding for the risers, too!|
The risers weren't right, either...they were actually made of leftover siding and just turned around. Fabulous construction, isn't it? We were appalled.
|The view from the top of the stairs...stipped down to the stringer. Three|
stairs at a time, so the upstairs wasn't cut off for too long.
So, it was all the way down to the stringers and starting from scratch...poor Superman! He enlisted some child labor, though, the job went quickly.
|Ah, this is what treads and risers are supposed to look like!|
|And off comes the riser to retrieve the crowbar...and a few screws that were |
dropped along the way...
|Aren't they gorgeous? Best of all, they're so sturdy and quiet! |
Functional beauty...absolutely fabulous!
