Stairway to Log Heaven

Here's our log staircase, just inviting you to come up and survey the log kingdom. Our cat (Marvin) loves weaving in and out of the rails and perching himself on top to meow at us. The steps are half logs - rounded on the bottom, flat on top. I'm looking for a small corner table to put on the staircase landing so it can showcase a nice vase or wooden loon carving or maybe just some silk flowers. You can see the temporary handrails that are fastened to the log one so we would pass the city inspection. I think it detracts from the log handrails so the temporary one might accidentally get removed....

I commented on your log stairs even before you posted about them. I just love them.

What a neat house. I just happened upon your blog. Thanks. I'm always wanting to build a house like this somewhere, so it's fun to see this one.

Give it some serious thought before you remove them. I had a problem with my knees awhile back, and the pretty cedar handrails I love were at the wrong height to use to help me get up and down the stairs. If not for the less attractive ones required by code, I would have been out of luck!

Jess- you were actually the one who prompted my memory - I thought the log staircase was worth mentioning - thanks!

Lucy - Thank you for coming by - please come again! I hope you get your dream house!

Jennifer - you gave me food for thought - maybe I will hold off. Thanks!

Love the staircase. We have a similar layout in our cabin and are getting ready to start building our staircase. Do you have any pictures of the underside of the landing? Curious how it is built and suspended. thanks.
