I made custom walnut stairs and risers for my basement stairway. The lumber came from trees we cut down to build my mom's new house. This was my first major project and I am incredibly proud of it.

Here is the album

A few years ago, my mother started building a house. She had to clear multiple trees, which she always hates to do because she loves trees. She decided that the trees that were cut down, she would have rough sawn and kiln dried. She used that lumber to make the cabinets and some decorative pieces for her new home, but there was a ton of lumber left over.

Last year I renovated my basement and took up all of the carpet. This included the carpet on the basement stairs. I had made the decision to make the treads and risers custom out of the lumber from her lot.

Since this wasn't really purchased the conventional way, and we had 7 or 8 trees done at once, I really don't have a specific price to share. I dont want to take a guess at it because I don't want to lead anyone astray

Very early in the project I learned that this was bot a "cookie cutter" operation. Each stair tread and riser would have to be custom cut for the individual step it would be installed. Since the drywall is not true and square, it created about a +/- 1/8" variation corner to corner of any given piece. I found the widest wall to wall gap i could find on the stairs and then cut the tread boards 1" more than that to give me some excess to shape the boards to the correct dimension

I set the stop block on the miter saw to this dimension and had a day of just cutting and grain matching. Once I found boards that went well together I numbered them as a set to prepare for glue up. For glue up, I biscuit joined every joint to help keep the surface true and reduce the amount of surface rework that would be required (the treads were much wider than my jointer capacity)

I cut a 5 degree chamfer to help keep the joint tight where the tread meets the riser

Once everything was cut to size I put 2 coats of sealer on. I sealed the end grain on both sides that would be contacting drywall to avoid the lumber from wicking moisture from the wall

I installed all of the risers first. The treads would be cut to their final depth based on the riser above and below it. I had to shim out the construction risers so that the furnace would be true and the joint would close up nicely

Once risers were installed, I installed each tread step by step. Back and forth between measuring and cutting until I had a perfect fit. Repeat X 13

I hope this was a clear enough overview! This imgur album has some pictures that may he

Save your lumber scraps - even short lengths can be useful.

I always thought my Pops was silly for saving practically every piece of 2x4 longer than 6". Turns out I'm a similar breed. I built these shelves from leftover 2x4 and 1x4 scraps, with shelf tops made from some 1x6 boards that were part of a crate I received when ordering windows.

Felt great to put this stuff to use and I'm glad I saved it!

Newer lumber bolted to original supports in attic

We bought our house about 3 months ago, and had what I considered to be a very thorough inspection, but it didn't mention this. We had a few issues with chimney and subsequent flashing, but nothing about support problems. I've been up in the attic multiple times, and just noticed that in one of the corners of the house, there is newer lumber nailed to the original lumber supports in several places. The original lumber looks fine, no cracks, splitting, rotting etc. So I'm not sure why they would have added the newer stuff to it. Here's an image of what I'm talking about:

Anyone know why this would have been done?

Should I wait for the cost of lumber to come down?

I am going for a consultation with an Architect tomorrow to discuss getting plans drawn up for a room addition on my home. Wife and I have been planning this addition for 3 years now and it is all hinged on the timing of our "first time homeowner" loan reaching the 5 year mark in Aug 2021. When that loan drops off the home we want to refi our main loan and get some equity money to do the addition.

Reading online gave me the impression a typical plain room addition would be in the $120 per SqFt range for my area. After being in contact with a couple contractors regarding this they were saying the price PRE-COVID was more like $150 and the price now is somewhere between $250 and $300 because of COVID. This seems ridiculous to me.

We were thinking the budget would be in the $15,000 area and now we are being told to think closer to $35,000. This is just a plain bedroom and closet. Would I be a fool to continue to move forward with this? Does anyone think lumber and labor prices will come back down? Should I wait to move on with this plan?
