Stairs – Part 2

With the slop and mess of the foam insulation and plaster behind us and the mechanics and wiring in place, it was time to get into the details. The Cornerstone team spent the better part of two days setting the Newel Posts and getting the permanent treads and risers installed. Stairs are complicated. Our stairs are turning out beautiful. They will be the welcoming feature in our foyer.

Fluted box Newel Post to coordinate the details in the Livingroom mantel.

The Newel Posts were notched and installed adn look as if they have always been there. Matt and I really appreciate the beauty of these posts. Even though they were pricey, they were worth every penny.

The upper floor Newel Posts without the fluting to help ease the transition into a more casual space.

The way they turned the corner and ended the base to the wall with a wedge is quality. Most will just straight cut the base to the wall. This nice detail shows Cornerstone’s commitment to quality work.
