Completion! All but the painting now; handrails and posts to be painted still, followed by the staining of the floor.
Just in time for summer! I'm that pleased with it. I've been meaning to do this ever since I bought the place - eight years ago.
On the list of things to do - repaint the bottom half of the house to match the railings. I've cashed in a heap of credit card rewards points to buy a paint sprayer which should make the job a lot easier.
