I have had a few folks asking if we were moved in the new house yet.. and while it is going on 3 years, one would think we would be, but this is an example of why we aren't.
Stair parts below:
We were thinking of using barn beams and racking for the handrail, but after much looking, we had a hard time finding enough parts that matched well enough to be used together. We tried finding new materials that we could distress, but finding posts that had not been treated, but were the size we were looking for AND had been kiln dried was not easy either. Jack came home from the new Menards store in Cincinnati with a pamphlet of log railing. Before he had a chance to order them, Wyatt and I brought in a small load of locusts from Dad's neighboring farm.
