Log Home Interior - Rustic Stairs and Railings

Rustic Staircase - February 2 - 17, 2004

It took six guys to get these log risers upstairs! The ends of each step were traced onto cardboard, and the pattern was cut into the log risers using an electric chainsaw and wood chisel for a custom fit.

Rustic Railings - February 17 - 23, 2004

The posts and railings around the loft and down the steps are the same as those used on the front and back decks. The spindles were too long to use down the steps, so they had be be lathed to a shorter length before being installed. Note that the railings are individually mortised into the posts for a custom fit.
