The noise isn’t over but greatly reduced. The bing bong of the amazing staircase is not so ongoing and we inch closer to it’s completion. Here’s a sneak peak — feeling more like home everyday.
At the base of these new stairs we don’t have a traditional Newel post as originally was the case. The sweet twist is that the original Newel post, is being transitioned to the outside staircase as you enter the Pink House. Happily I’m sharing the result of my weekend activities. Yeah to the Newel:
late Middle English: from Old French nouel ‘knob’, from medieval Latin nodellus, diminutive of Latin nodus ‘knot’.
…and I was working on my Masters in Stripping those knobs and knots.
It’s not completely transformed but as close to 1898 as it ever was!
