Staircases take on many shapes and sizes, and one of the most elegant stair options is the curved or circular staircase.  This month, we highlight four unique custom stairs projects built and installed by our talented team. From a rustic farmhouse to modern luxury, our team leverages robust design and project management capabilities to construct the highest quality circular stairs across the nation.

Featuring white oak custom solid wood handrail, white oak solid wood stringers and treads, and plain bar iron balusters in a smooth black finish, this spiral is truly a superior circular stairs project.

What makes these custom stairs so unique? Unlike many spiral stairs, this cutting-edge double helix stair design does not require a center post for structural support.  Without a center column, the modern curves of this high-end residential staircases are truly on display.
