Thanks

The riser step can not go to a point. It needs a 6" flat end on it. One of your risers has the flat end, can't tell if its 6" though.

Julie, the winder tread, or the one on the landing at an angle, needs to be full width at the assent/descent line, which is 12 inches from the inside edge of the hand rail. What ever the width of the rest of your treads are, the winder needs to be the same width at the assent/descent line.

Do you know what flooring that is and if so, could you tell me how it held up? Is it handscraped?

I'm most interested on how this is going to be resolved. He does good work for sure though.
