Stairs and steps
Good evening. Worked in 7th grade again today and had friends over for dinner tonight. I didn't get much done on either the 1:12 or 1:48 houses. However, I do think I managed to tame the stairs problem.
When I substitute in this one area, there's a math teacher, Phil, who loves solving puzzles. I was busy during down time drawing plans for 1:48 furniture and he came in the classroom. I presented him with the problem. He began to do some figuring on the board, showing me how he would compute the 1:48. Of course, not being a math person, I just listen and follow.
So with his advice, I came home and began working on the stairs. I am drawing each step and riser to see what works best. I don't want the stairs to come out too far but I want them to be nice. I will try to finish them tomorrow, along with the grout in the library.
I have quite a few projects to do tomorrow, as well, so I better get to bed. I stayed up last night too late watching Project Runway!
