Construction Error and trip hazard
I completed a family room addition to our home a couple of years ago. We asked the contractor to make a half step down to the room from the adjoining dining room. When done and the hardwood floor laid, the "step" ended up being about 2 inches, just enough to trip over coming in and going out. I have had several contractors look at it but no good ideas yet. Currently, we have installed some small LED lights under the lip of the "step" so when leaving the family room you see the step, at night anyhow. Coming into the room you can't see the step. My guests have nearly fallen before and I am constantly having to warn them to watch their step. -- Short of making the contractor start over, I am at a loss. Ideas??
