Custom Made Wooden Steps

My amazing husband designed and made a wonderful exterior staircase after getting information from his customers on what they wanted the staircase design to include. The wife wanted rounded caps on top of the posts. The husband wanted grip groves in the wood for the top landing. When my husband first dropped off the wood and explained the project to me I just figured, oh, ok, an exterior staircase. But as it started to take shape I thought, wow, this could really be an outstanding staircase!

As I took photos at various different stages of the project, I truly came to appreciate my husbands talent. He made the staircase as if he was making it for us! I watched as he sanded the hand rails, so no one would ever get a splinter and carefully cut each piece of wood. He made the steps depth deep enough so every foot would be able to fit squarely on each step.

My husband is my Hero.

Until we meet again... Francesca27

      Hi Francesca,

      As a wife that has been madly in love with my husband for 25 years, I like finding someone else that understands that. I just think my husband is amazing for so many reasons.

      I'll be Happy to follow you.

      What a nice commentary on your husband. It's very refreshing to read about someone who appreciates, respects, admires, and loves their spouse. There is not enough writings like this. It seems that all the world wants to read about are stories that include the "seven deadly sins".
