Check out these incredible stair designs by Vermont architect Bob Swinburne. They're sleek, modern, industrial-feeling, and affordable. Could we ask for anything more? I am in love. Luckily for us, Bob has agreed to come on board for our project and design our stairs and second floor railing. Very exciting. Besides using birch stair treads, I'm assuming ours will look very similar to these two.
I should also mention that Bob is in the proces of building a project similar to ours, Perry Road, a green, modern farmhouse.
His blog is also a wonderful read and has a lot more information about the Perry Road project. He also discusses topics like composting toilets, SIPs, and good fiberglass windows.
