Yes, they are finally done. And what a world of difference it makes in the basement. Here's some before and after pictures.
Before, aaand I just realized that I didn't ever take a before picture of the old stairs before they were ripped down. What kind of blogger am I??

This was taken before we moved in. You can kinda see what they looked like. To my disappointment, they did not leave the awesome wooden chair.
The only photo I have of the stairs close up. They were covered in vinyl, nice.
And they're gone
Dave's already started re-doing the trim on that side of the basement.
