The owner wanted this set of stairs reversed and to be enclosed. 
The oak for the stairs and the wide pine wainscot was hand planed to match existing work in this 18th century home in Upper Red Hook, Dutchess County, NY.
A small shelf  and a plaque built with carved sunflower as donations to Historic Albany's Silent Auction.
