Last July, when we decided it was time to order the stairs, we called 2 people for proposals.
One was a local craftsman who would hand-make them to our specifications. We’ve seen his work; they would have been gorgeous. They also would have been slightly more expensive and he couldn’t do it until January.
When we were gainfully employed, back in the beginning of time, we did a bit of business in London. We always flew into Gatwick and had a favorite spot we liked to stay in not too far from the airport.
