An essential part of any Victorian house is the interior woodwork. While there are “custom home-builders” who make “Victorian-inspired” new houses, most of them fall dramatically short when it comes to this crucial aspect. During the framing stage, our frame carpenters built temporary stairs out of pine boards to facilitate the access to the second floor.
Our trim carpenters built our oak staircase off-site. They installed all of the oak window casings, door casings, and archways, and then as the last phase of work, they tore down the temporary staircase and installed the oak staircase in its place. Our head trim carpenter was our most difficult contractor to work with, but he was indisputably a true, old-world craftsman. The staircase is absolutely rock-solid, and it is 100% oak. This team of two worked continuously for nine months crafting and installing the woodwork. The resulting quality of the finished product is truly stunning.
