Stairs and Railings

The original stairs were replaced in the '90's but maintained the same basic structure - straight up and into the kitchen.

In the Fall of 2012, it was decided that more space was needed in the kitchen and the new stair design was created with a landing and a left turn to enter into the living room instead of the kitchen - freeing up the prior top of the stairs for a new storage cabinet (not in place yet).
Unfortunately, I did not take pictures from the beginning and during the construction - only at the end - as shown below:
