After months of searching we have found suitable stairs for our loft, in Hastings. They are a beautiful golden rimu from a recycling yard, we were determined to have recycled rimu stairs because they would suit the style of our cottage rather than newly constructed stairs built in MDF or plywood. The stairs were collected from the yard a few days ago, we are tracking their descent from the North to South Island online. We are just so pleased and relieved to have made progress with the rebuild. Next time the local children, Tom and Sophie ask us if we have stairs yet we can say that we will very soon. In fact they will be installed in 2 weeks!
