I have been doing stair building and hand railings for over 30 years. It is fun to look back on past jobs and think of where we have been and the woodwork that we have done. We have stairs built in just about every town in the North Bay Area (Bay being San Francisco Bay), from Gualalla to the South of San Francisco, from Bodega Bay to Sacramento and the Sierra Foothills on up to Lake Tahoe.On the coastal plane north of Bodega Bay in the salty grotto of Soreno Del Mar there are a few modern stairs that we have fabricated and installed, in Sebastopol we have put in several craftsman stairs into older bungalows. In Santa Rosa we have done custom foothill homes, upper end subdivision staircases, commercial work, as well as condominiums. In Healdsburg we have worked on many Wineries and Wine Country homes.
Staircase design really has no limit and we haven’t found much correlation between geographic and design similarities with the exception of Sea Ranch and Bodega Harbor. These coastal communities, because they have design boards and I’m sure because the folks that settle there favor the indigenous, have leaned more towards the Modern Style or the simplicity of the Craftsman Style.
