log home stair issues
 
2 Attachment(s)

Customer has big (2") differences in her stair treads which are actual logs split in half. My solution was to replace log treads with new ones that I would modify to "fix" the rise and run issues. She has no room for new stringers, so, I figured I'd work with what she has. My question does anyone have a supply source for anything like this? I've done nothing but stairs and rails for twenty years, but never anything like this. Not sure about material. Maybe douglas fir, or white pine?? I should be better with woods, but all I know is finish oak, maple, cherry, etc.
Again anyone know possible materials for a log home. House is located in S. Jersey.
