Like Dallas said

Seriously Karl you may need to pull an all nighter to finish on time. The stairs look good, a little unsafe but considering the neglected paint on the building maybe the hand rails could just be some broken strip wood on the ground.

Looking forward to your finish.

It's looking very good, Karl. Geometry and adjustment are perfect. I have been wondering whether a bit of 'differential' wear on the stairs to show where people usually walk would make sense.

Thanks indeed for the replies Delbert, Dallas Larry, Frederic and Bryan, great to read your posts.

Bryan if I had known you were sitting there waiting for updates I would have picked up the pace a little .
Great to hear from a newer member and that you are enjoying the build.

Nice job on the stairs - this was one of my favorite parts of main street - you will recall I had a family coming out of the upstairs doorway and preparing to scale the step to the lower level - loved that little bit of action and I can already imagine such a thing happening here - again - sweet work

Thanks indeed Elliot Kris and Karl.S, most appreciated.

Elliot, I have your build thread open in another window on the screen infront of me and refer to it often as I am building.

I have been watching this build as a VERY new builder (doing my first actual house - weathering the wood now). Your work is so amazing! I really want the old farmhouse to be weathered white paint, but can't imagine doing as well as you have! Can't wait to see the finished work! And....thanks SO MUCH for sharing!
