i have stairs

When my new contractor came to do an estimate on the work a couple weeks ago, he was very concerned that the stairs hadn't been installed.  He said it is usually indicative that there is an issue with the space.  Yesterday, he fixed the issue.

i gain some space in the upstairs hallway.  notice the new double joists.

I used Zar Rosewood stain and Man-O-War Marine Spar Varnish to seal it.  Watch out for the fumes, they're intense.
