My home is a bungalow. I have done many projects from drywalling, tiles,
electrical, blah blah blah but have never done stairs. My basement is
finished and I want to continue on up the stairs, eliminate the older faux
wood panels which run up the stairs, drywall the two side walls and the
entire area including side door, landing area and steps up to the kitchen.
My problem is a mental block on how to do the stairs after the drywalling.
The risers, treads and stringer are the typical basement 2 x ? wood cover
with a cheap outdoor type carpet and dried up glue on everything. I know
I'll remove the treads and most likely replace with pine. But do I remove
the risers and do the same? Cover them? What about the stringers? I don't
want to remove them since I have the walls already set on each side.
Any help to approach this is greatly appreciated.
