Staircase Upgrade (Entry to the Great Canadian Contest 2008)

My name is Mike and have been undergoing a reno of 1400 square feet of the upstairs of my house for the last eight months.  I have done all the work myself except the installation of gas fireplaces.  The photo I am submitting is not necessarily a ‘room’ renovation but a huge part of the house in itself.  It’s the staircase.

The reason I chose this to submit rather than a room was because of the expertise help I received to get the job done.  The staff at the Coquitlam Windsor Plywood are all top notch!  It’s great knowing you can go into there with questions that will get answered by people who know their stuff.  Unlike other stores, the information I get from Windsor is the correct info.  Your staff answered all my questions, gave me tips and were very friendly doing so.

The material I used in this particular project from Windsor was the MDF skirting and baseboards.  Hope you like!
