    I LOVE your site! What fabulous stairs!!! This is how I’d like to design in my new home. Unfortunately, my builder has no concept other than wood, and I’ve really had to fight with him to get him to try to understand my vision. I want a steel, open staircase and am getting someone to create it for me. My builder is having fits, but I’m still going to do it my way.
    I’m going to give him this site, and hopefully he’ll maybe start to expand his very limited mind.
