Vintage Look/ Budget Cost Staircase

You can achieve a vintage  elements to your home without spending a fortune. Carpentry Severna Park Quality Carpentry Staircase

Most  stairwells are made with basic upgrades and classic elements.  This stair carriage was site built with 2×12 stringers and maple treads.  All of the components were glued and screwed together.  No stair squeaks here and we built this 20 years ago.  The maple handrail, newels and pilaster newels are all custom fabricated and installed.  The ball cap for the newels and the handrail brackets are stock items.  Notice there are no balusters here.  Instead, we used low budget drywall kneewalls, cutting expenses where we could, while still achieving a vintage look
