Sandstone Stairs (10 pictures)
Down with stair carpet! I feel that carpet has no business on the stairs. I’d like to get rid of it all together. The stairs from the garage to the front entry/kitchen were the worst. Grimy and gray. Impossible to really shampoo & vacuum. Paul replaced them with sandstone.
Stage One was ripping off the carpet. The people who built the house didnâ€™t bother to clean the construction debris from under the stairs. Paul made his custom boxes to make the steps stronger (Maltese style) then put down new boards. Sandstone was purchased from a landscaping shop. I picked out a really cool one with a fossil on it. The steps were cut with a wet saw and glued down. I painted the back boards and stained the trim.
