Sustainable Design Embodied in Our Stair Rail

Building the perfect stairwell is an investment in time, design, patience and yes, money. This part of our building project is heavy on design and detail but has an incredible element of sustainable design. Every piece of our stairwell rail, newells and posts are made from 200 year old pine harvested from a barn found in Wisconsin and milled by local artisans Hardwood Design. Liek teh stair bodies and treads, the wood captures the character we were looking for in reclaimed materials in our Narragansett LEED home.

Here are some photos of the installation from start to finish.
