The attic stairs have almost reached the top! One detail added since last time: where the stringers of the two separate runs connect, they are doweled together.  In other words, a vertical wood dowel was set into the bottom stringer, and then the top stringer was set onto it.  Rather than having the stringers touch each other, the dowel keeps them apart by about a half inch, yielding a “floating” appearance.  Chalk that idea upto Jason.  Soon enough I’ll be priced out of these carpenters, they do some fine and careful work.  ImageImageImageImage
