This project was part of renovating an old farmhouse in south west France. With the existing doors, a spiral staircase was the only option. It is shown here with suitable Christmas decoration (and small dogs)! The total cost for materials was £500 and I did have to learn how to weld. The saving on having it built and installed was about £2,000 and the welding skills have been very useful for later projects.

It was a fun project with a steep learning curve. I did document it and take a lot of photographs; this enabled me to sell the story to a British woodworking magazine and recoup my material costs.
