I finished up things today. These 5 pounders got handles and will get slipped tomorrow. I made six but only 4 made the cut. Tomorrow I am working all day on tearing out the existing stairway and installing a new stairwell and stairs. It's probably going to be a long day. The new stairwell will have a door at the bottom, the new stairs have to be steeper to accomodate this change. I am going to miss the old stairs, I've climbed them many times over the past 10 years. Anyhow, change is good, at least that's what I've heard.
