The stairs aren't anything massively special for the period but so far they appear to be all original so I aim to remove all later additions like this hardboard and restore as much as possible.
Hardboard nailed and glued in place Used a hot-air gun to soften the glue and start peeling back the years.
Blobs of glue, the remains of hardboard and hundreds of tiny nails.
It wasn't long before I had to disconnect the smoke-detectors.
Still a lot more wood to strip but it's getting there.
