|By the way Doug, making that staircase really gave me an appreciation,
for all of the work and thought that goes into scratch-building.
That one little staircase took me hours of research into stair designs,
and four or five paper templates to get something less the 45%,
that had sufficient headroom for a client and his plunder,
that mated up to the upper platform and the boardwalk,
and fit next to the building without getting into the boardwalk,
or beyond the rear of the land office, and a total rise of under 151 inches.
(that last one I never checked and WC wouldn't have cared anyway, but I kept it in mind)
All of those stairs and railings on Updah make my head spin.
I thoroughly enjoyed the process however,
and hope to scratch-build at least one structure.
