Recently I found this great book (The O-B Book) and great forum. By lurking here for a couple of weeks I've already gotten a lot of useful information that I couldn't possibly get from anywhere else.

So winter returned this morning with incessant wind again, and some snow.  Moisture is welcome around here this spring as we had so little snow, that fire danger is extreme. So it was a good thing. But it did prevent Sandra from working outside sanding the handrails.  And I stayed in for good measure as well. Lord knows there is plenty inside. Sandra went ahead and lacquered the live edge we are using to make the half bath vanity and then proceeded to resand the top surface of the stair treads leading up to the fourth floor, taking off the protective film we have placed on them with the wild idea it would protect them during construction.  Well it did for a month and then it began to get worn through and get more so and more so.  After a thorough sanding - stain! What a chore! There are sooooo many surfaces to cover.   But it looks great to have them stained.  Unfortunately neither she nor I got photos yet. So later.


For my part, I started creating the metal railing for the stairs.  Each square tube has to be cut and fitted individually between two pieces of angle iron that has been attached to the stair frame. Then welded.  The assemblies will then be removed later to finish welding, clean and be painted.  

Late in the day, the first order of doors arrived by truck on an 8’ pallet along with the beams for the kitchen on a 14’ pallet.  I am so happy we have that Skytrak!

First metal rail section done.
Further along. I got the entire first floor to second floor done in one day. This will go quicker than I thought - I think ??
