« Part 2: demo time! part one of many Part 3 of Basement Remodel series Part 4: On Hold?! »

so my cousin was kind enough to come up this past Saturday and help me complete 95% of the demo.All that is left is to finish taking up the linoleum and cutback adhesive (if I can), and apparently now my SO has added replacing the stair treads and risers. They were carpeted before, but I was under the impression they could just be ‘recovered’ with a new oak tread and riser. HA! Until I measured the current tread and found it’s 2x material. sigh so if we want oak stairs, that means replacing at least the treads. Anybody have any experience/resources for this? I may repost some of this in a forum just to see if someone can get me started. I reached out to my dad, but it’s been a while since he’s dealt with stairs. I didn’t mind if it was just a refacing project. I don’t even mind replacing the treads…so I guess for now I’ll just try to finish the linoleum and cutback adhesive removal. Hoping the installation of the walls will be starting in the next week or so!
