Tuesday after plugging all the screw holes in the treads I got to the top of the stairs only to find the last rise to the upstairs floor was 1/4 inch more than acceptable so I wasted half a day on a re-do of the last 3 top treads in an attempt to spread the difference between several steps. Today, I finally got to the fiddly bits of the knee wall cap, skirt trim and the handrail.
handrail is fixed in place and the balusters are only bottom cut

Granite counter tops and appliances went in on Monday
