We constructed a new library & sitting area over a new completely remodeled kitchen. We designed & custom built this spiral staircase and set it beside the new fireplace. We wanted the stair to have a rustic, furniturized, refined, traditional, 'feel' being in a very open view of the kitchen, living,dining room entry hall & bar. The spiral library concept gave the element of cassual comfort. We deformalized the open floor plan with an architectural item of interest, so a statement of craftmanship was very important. We forged iron into leaves and vines climbing the stair, traversing the balcony & railing, all antiqued. Hand painted details in light pastel natural colors, to reflect the rugged mountain slope, viewing out of this High Country Retreat at Lake Tahoe, Incline Village Nevada. We also build curved & circular entryway staircases.
