Looks like a well executed demo and re-build of a set of stairs that was long overdue for it.

I don’t see the “disaster” in it.

Nice job.

Looks like it turned out nice, I used to do a lot of jobs like that, it can be a nightmare, you never know what you’re going to run into, nothing level nothing square to work off from, man, I’m glad i’m not do it anymore.

Nothin better than a good few days of plaster demo to make your boogers feel like rocks. End product came out great andy keep it up.

What a task that became. You just never know what is behind those walls

Looks like you got our 7/10 rise/run mixed up ;). Nothing like a good staircase challenge. I’ve done a few heritage renos myself like this, what a mess it can create!

Final product looks great!

Have your say...
