An Old Staircase


In the old house that we just refinished the upstairs,  the homeowners also needed their staircase refinished. They had carpet on them and this is what was underneath.

The carpet pad was a thick crust.

The risers the homeowner was going to paint herself. So, we prepped them for painting and we sanded down the treads and put three coats of finish on them.

Starting to scrape off crusted carpet pad.
All cleaned up.



Is There Any Hope For These Floors?

“Can you do somthing with our floors?”  The homeowner of this house asked us when we came out to see their project.

The floorboards were cupped, and loose. They looked like they were not maintained for a long time.

Warren was able to replace or repair them. We then sanded them thoroughly and put three coats of Profesional urethane on them.

Most of the floors we are guessing to be hemlock. One room was antique heart pine.  We were very pleased with the results.

Installed a Kitchen Floor

This house we had done the floors and staircase a few years ago. The home owners wanted their kitchen floor to hardwood floor like the rest of the house. This past week we were able to install oak hardwood floors, then stain it and finished as we did the rest of the floors.


Two Sets of Bunkbeds

Can you make us a couple sets of bunk beds?  Sure! We can help. The customer brought to us nine, old pine, 3×3 inch posts that he got from an auction. He then sent us a photo of the bunkbed he Can you make us a couple of bunk beds? We are expecting our sixth childhad in mind.

We went rummaging through the wood collection we have and found pine boards that matched the posts.

We did a mortis and tennon on the  boards and posts, made safety rails for top and bottom.

We then stained them special walnut and applied 3 coats of finish on them.

A Unique Job

There was a house that used to be a barn. The last part of it to be renovated was the staircase. What was there was the original barn loft stairs. The homeowner wished to have the bead board removed and shiplap put up.

The staircase was at a very steep angle due to the fact it used to be a barn. We were able to change the angle slightly, trying to accommodate.

We tore down the old bead board  and cedar shingles, replacing them with the shiplap.

Seventeen Year Old Floor

This floor had a factory finish of aluminum oxide.  It was installed 17 years ago. In this picture you can see where the area rug was.

Sun bleached finish

We sanded the floor down to raw wood and stained to match the original color.


We used a professional grade satin urethane finish and applied 3 coats.

A Few Staircases

In the summer we were working on a few staircases.

With this job we replaced the balustrade with a more modern look.

This staircase the homeowner wanted somethong more contempory.  She really liked the handrail and newel post to be a continiual line.

This is a staircase we refinished in a house built in the twenties! We refinished the tread and risers and installed new floor boards on the landing.

With this staircase we refinished the handrails, newel post, treads, the facing stringer, painted the risers and back stringer.

Kitchen Island Cabinet

We were asked to make a rather large island cabinet in an old farm house. The homeowner didn’t have much countertop to work, for how big the kitchen was.
We built it so a microwave could fit underneath the countertop. She also wanted a trash/recycle bin cabinet. We got it installed and it fit perfectly with the room.

We then were asked to take out the old microwave and install a cabinet for the hidden range vent.
