@rae underhill Dyer - Horizontal Wood Paneling on Stairway - Whilst sanding my kitchen window I had an idea for your stairway in H'ville. (I quit trying to figure out the way my brain works a long time ago.) The idea involves horizontal paneling and trimmed out pillars. Also a tall wall in the loft with something like this on top of it. Just an idea.
