"I have attached
a few photos of a recent installation in the New Orleans warehouse district. The
customer purchased a Phoenix and a Karina and is extremely pleased with both
"As you can see,
the space I had to install my new stairs was very small. The dimensions are 4
feet 6 inches by 23 inches. From the floor to the top of the opening is 104
inches. The Karina stairs replaced a set of attic pull down stairs. I had
to widen the space by turning the studs sideways so I can put the railing on. It
was pretty tight working in the space but, as you can see, everything worked
out. My wife is ecstatic because the stairs don't twist and bend when she walks
on them like the pull down stairs did."
"The Parade Home
was one of seven show homes for an Annual Parade of Homes sponsored by the
Dallas National Association of Home Builders. It benefitted the Make A Wish
Foundation and every home had a room in it decorated around a child's wish that
had been granted. Our child, Giovanna, had wished for a club house to get away
from her brothers. We selected the Arke Stairs for it's innovative and space
saving design and it fit the look of our beach house motif. - Mary,
