Below, you can see the temporary rails Kel's put in for our staircase. He had to rip out the old ones to lay the hardwood and the new ones can't be installed until the new hardwood's down.
I wasn't going to post any pictures of our floors yet because their current condition simply doesn't do it justice! We've laid out all the hardwood planks on the floor to size to speed up the installation process. It's like the hardwood's exploded all over our living-dining room!
