Often overlooked as a design element, but certainly essential to any building, are your interior and exterior staircases. Timber stairs & handrails can be built all sorts of ways to get you from floor to floor. The choice of wood and style of finish can make a dramatic impact, whether you want a rustic appearance or a sleek, polished look.
Your stairs can be open, to allow multi-story views, or closed, to create an enclosed separate space.
Wooden handrails can be paired with metal or wood pickets, in an unlimited variety of designs to create just the look and style you want.

In addition to the "showstopper" staircase to the loft, MoreSun built two beautiful banquet style tables, two fireplace mantels, wood brackets around the house to support the roof overhang and railing for the balcony and porches to match the rest of the timber frame.
