Last Project of 2017

Jeremy Working on the New Stairs
The year seems to pass with home improvement projects punctuating many weekend activities. 
Old Stairs

The final house project of 2017 was replacing the attic stairs at Jeremy's house. It was not a difficult project, as projects go, but it was challenging. 

The existing stairs did not seal against the ceiling and one of the arms was broken. The new attic stairs are insulated and definitely fit tightly to the ceiling. I am hopeful that they significantly reduce the heat loss going up through the attic.

We were greatly aided bu a YouTube video which gave us some important tips which made the demolition and the reinstallation a bit easier. What did we ever do before YouTube?

And that, was the final house project of 2017. It was completed on New Year's Eve!
