Style And Elegance

Making a conscious effort to display finished work, I present you with the installed version of a previous post Balustrade. I could have added several other adjectives to the title but no number of them can describe what these photographs do. How does it go? A picture is worth a thousand adjectives or something like that? Coming from a structural background where most of what I am involved with ends up covered in sheet rock, it is certainly more rewarding to have a project like this on a resume. This is the focal point of this home and First Flight Stairs, from concept to creation, worked with the general contractor and their clients to embellish the interior of the home. The railing and balustrade installation took less than one day due to every prefabricated section fitting accurately together, in unison with staircase previously erected. What is particularly striking to me is the up easing connecting the lower balustrade to the upper balcony. It seems to lend an even “flow” to the stairs symmetry, creating a natural juncture between the two. The front door inlay pattern was also a consideration in the pattern chosen for the balustrade. The nosing for the staircase was coordinated with the flooring install a few weeks ago, so that it was adjusted for the flooring thickness. Usually, the flooring color choice dictates the species and ultimately the stain used for the railing, in this case mahogany. The wall coloring being light accentuates the dark wood flooring.
