update old carpeted builder stairs
to match new hardwood flooring i updated the stairs.
- remove the old treads & risers – cut them out, hammer them out, just get them out.
- cut new risers – clear pine that i painted, glued in with shim wedges
- install treads – oak treads glued and wedged
original treads were 2×12, replacement oak treads were only 1″ thick so they were shimmed up & gaps filled.
