Here is another example of a double open Oak Flared Stair and Rail with Iron Balusters in Voorhees NJ. The balcony rail has a radius (bump out in stairman terms). The iron baluster pattern homeowner chose is the 2 brass basket, and 2 straights as I hope you can see in pictures. If you have any stair and rail layout issues or questions feel free to call. The earlier the better. I've been called for help with many stair and rail projects. My advice is always the same. Don't wait too long to call. I like to know about schedule, and selections, and layout issues, if there are any before it's too late to change something that should be changed (to end up with the best case scenario for each foyer). Stair and rail stained with mahogany stain. Rail is "Charleston". Newel posts are 4410 "Carolina" style. All part #'s from www.carolinastair.com, my favorite supplier. I like Carolina Stair because their products are consistent. Some stair/rail manufacturers stair parts are very inconsistent in size, profile, grain, etc. For the iron balusters with brass baskets, I use www.houseofforgings.net. They're quick, and have a large selection on hand, ready to ship.
Time frame for install: 1 man roughly 5-7 days, depending on the 500 factors affecting each days' production.
