We are going to get between our two floors on a winder staircase that Della designed. I was going to blog about the wonderful winder stairway at Underhill House today because the basic framing in was completed yesterday.
Winders are nice because they minimize how much space the stairs take up.
Winders are awkward because it’s difficult to move things up and down on them.
Winders are also beautiful to look at and fun traverse as you spin around the corners.
Unfortunately, winders can also be a little tricky, and yesterday I went down them a little fast as it was getting a little dark, and I fell. I caught myself — but yikes and ouch and all of that.
So instead, today I’m providing a round up of some of the more interesting ways to get between floors that I have found.
