Stair Craftsmanship


An arched opening frames the stair as seen from the lower level bar.

A grand staircase can't be beat for making a statement. It's even better when it's framed by openings from other rooms in the home.


In this case, an arched opening from the lower level bar helps show off the beauty of this curved stairway with its intricate metal pickets.


This stair is also a testimonial to fine craftsmanship. The rough-in carriage for this stair was built off-site and delivered IN ONE PIECE, which fit perfectly. Thanks to Bergstedt Builders, the general contractor, and Stairbuilders Inc. (stairbuildersinc.net) for their attention to detail and careful coordination!
