First thing to do was to cut a 1×12 piece of mdf into a skirt-board.
This is the only trim that is against the wall down a finished set of stairs.
Then the skirt was ran up to the top of the steps and wrapped around the framing to create a undermolding for the nosing.
Nosing was laid down and fastened in place with liquid nails and a 15 gauge nail gun.
False risers were ran and endcaps were fastened on top of them to create a surface which could be fully stain grade against the carpet.
Newel posts were cut to residential code hieght and the handrail was ran between each newel post.
On this wall a hole was ground into the stone and the handrail was set in place and fastened using two rossettes.
This is a top view where the hadrail was fastened to the wall and ran between the newel posts. Holes were then drilled to accomadate the spindles.
Everything was stained, and spindles were then cut to fit between the nosing, endcaps, and handrail.
The spindles were then fastened in place using clear silicone and the boots were tightend down.
Carpet will eventually be laid up to the point where it meets the nosing to complete the look of the project.
Stone was ran around the handrail by another company and the stone wall handrail was finished.
This is another image of the completed project
