|Step One, Isn't it a Mess!|
Another fine piece of handiwork by Joe Romano the man who built this house! There wasn't a complete wooden step, there were two good sides and an improperly cut piece of wood that didn't even fit, the edges didn't match.
Quickly Mac ripped up the next stair, it was ok so he went on to the third. It wasn't as bad as the first stair, but it too had a piece of wood inserted between the two sides.
So no sanding and staining was going to fix this mess. We went to plan B, sand down the stairs and put carpet stair treads in a pattern we liked. Soon we realized that this wouldn't disguise that hideous first step.
On to plan C, put carpet, in a nice pattern, all the way down. We've sent photos to our carpet guy and now we're waiting to hear from him.
This isn't the first time we've found shoddy work by Joe Romano and I'm sure it won't be the last.
