In order for us to lay the hardwood floor in the upstairs foyer, we must first build the stairs to the 3rd floor/attic! Last weekend, Jeff and Randy cut the hole in the upstairs ceiling (allowing 150 years of dust to crash into my home, but we won't go there...), and today we built the frame for the stairs! Jeff came up with the plan and we are executing it!
We also held up the backsplash and got a little idea of what it will look like! I don't know when we'll get to it, but it is going to look great! We are using the same antique (1910) metal ceiling tiles as we will use on the downstairs foyer's ceiling.
Jeff has also been working on the center piece of glass for the front door. Here is a picture inside
