Watch this video to see how we fabricated bullnose trim to finish off the heart pine flooring on the staircase landing of the Kuppersmith project house and constructed a new staircase railing that matched the existing one perfectly.
In addition to modifying the interior wall framing on the Kuppersmith Project house to allow for added closet space and new doorways, we also removed part of the staircase landing on the second floor to open up the space. Watch this video to see how it was done.
When finishing a basement, be sure the stairs leading to it from the main floor meet building codes and do not pose a safety hazard. Possible areas of concern include the width of the stairs, the height to width ratio of the treads, and clearance at the bottom of the stairs.
Even if your attic is well insulated, the folding stairs that provides access can be a major source of heat loss. Watch this video to see how to make an insulating cover from foam board to insulate the stairs leading to your attic.
