The Basement Stairs, Dry Fitting the Treads
Bob was at our place today for a super long time, arriving around 1PM and leaving around 9:30 PM. Liz and I came home to find all the treads cut and in place – allowing us to walk up/down the stairs!
We had to be a little careful though, but it felt great. Though I must admit, I’ve gotten much better dancing up the partial steps already.
Despite a really weird day/night/morning, I was able to clear the debris from the yard yesterday… and also got to measure and cut the remaining 4-5 pieces of masonate that we’re adhering to the risers.
Bob was able to sand these down, flush with each step – and now we have nearly all the pieces in place!
