Our Build

Diary

Checking out our floating stairs.

Check out our stairs! How good do they look!!??

I popped down to Wellington to check them out yesterday while they were assembled in the Stylecraft Stairways factory. They always do this to ensure they’re perfect, before sending them off to be coated and delivered to site. 

Unfortunately Kylie couldn’t make it, but I was able to FaceTime her as I walked up and down them. Honestly we couldn’t be happier. The Stylecraft team have done an amazing job. They are stunning and we can’t wait for them to be in our house.

Which isn’t too far away. The treads will get coated, the steel stringer will be painted and the glass balustrade made, then they’ll get shipped up to Auckland next week.

Stylecraft make all kinds of stairs for projects right across New Zealand. While I was there I couldn’t help but take a bunch of photos in the factory as the guys went about their craft.

    • Hey Amanda – yeah they’re amazing! It’s American Ash – these photos show it raw, still needs to protective coating on it, the clear one actually turns it quite a yellow colour so we’ve added a white wash to it to keep it as close to this raw colour as possible.

  1. Great staircase which we be the ‘model’ of our new one! .. but how and where did you make the ‘safe’ balustrade at one or both sides of the stairs?
