Paneling a Stairway

duffydawgNovember 12, 2013

I am building a Shingle Style home and wish to panel the stairway from basement to second floor, including the underside of the stairs. I thought paneling came premade but I guess not. Carpenter has a quote of $11K to do this with painting, caulking and installing with crown. Anyone familiar with paneling. Is this reasoned?

Do you have an inspiration photo of what you want this to look like that you can post?

seriously? For 11K I would try to think outside of the box.
What is the look you are striving for? I wonder if you are thinking of the white panel board ( sorry I simply cannot think of the words) like an apron in a dining room--?
I do not think that real wood paneling has been manufactured since the 60's.
Please more info about what you are looking for.
