Just Right Staircase - Villa Grove Park - 2022

The beauty is in the details. Dark stained hardwood handrails and posts are supported with elegant black iron balusters. Line of site is open and airy. The presentation is softened with partially carpeted steps and risers which also provide sound reduction and increased safety. This substantial staircase is built for years of high usage in high style.

Graceful Curves Ahead – Hudson Meadows – 2006

The original unimposing cookie cutter stairway occupied the center of the entry foyer blocking the view from the entry to the backyard. This stairway was removed, a cantilevered landing was installed on the second level and a graceful curved staircase installed. Accented with an ornamental wrought iron railing, glazed risers and hardwood treads this majestic staircase provides an open view into the beautiful backyard of this 5-acre estate.

Habitually Historic – Sunset Terrace – 2009

As an integral part of the restoration of a 1500-sf basement in a 1928 Maple Ridge historic home we completely rebuilt the stairway. The entire railing system along with stairway risers and treads were removed. Damaged balusters were accurately reproduced using original drawings for the home. New oak treads and pine risers were added to complete the restoration.

Metallic Accents – South Tulsa – 1985

A custom stainless-steel and brass circular stairway takes the homeowner and his guests from the dining room to the black ebony wet bar on the balcony above. Brass and stainless steel were chosen for the stairway’s construction by The Buckingham Group because they were symbolic of the owners’ financial success in the sale of precision brass and stainless-steel valve assemblies.

Step Aside – Wexford Estates – 2016

Stairway railings serve more than a functional purpose in this whole house Tulsa Remodel. New oak railings, treads and risers and ornamental iron balusters replaced carpeting and wood balusters to create a visual presence for this first to second level stairway.

Form meets Function – Childers Heights Addition – 1986

This award-winning stairway was fabricated using a combination of two fabricators, Zephyr Metal and Ernie Wiemann Metalcraft, both of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Connecting the first and second levels of an elaborate triple spaced condominium it provides the route for the owners and guests to descend from the living room into the entertainment room. All elements of the staircase were handcrafted with meticulous detail.

Curved Accent – Braniff Hills – 2018

Located near the Southern Hills Country Club this home had been built in the mid 50’s for a prominent Tulsa family. Strategically located on a sloping three – acre lot and surrounded by mature trees, the home rested peacefully, waiting patiently for a new homeowner to refresh its interior and to complement its exterior with additional architectural features. This curved staircase was one element of the extensive remodel that was done by The Buckingham Group.

Defining Details – Braniff Hills – 2018

Details of the ornamental iron and bread loaf oak handrail are illustrated in this photo. Rising from new oak stair treads this once boring staircase was transformed into an elegant feature of the entry hall.
