The growth and success of our company in Seattle since 1988 is due to the work and excellent standing of Loren Dugan. His rock-solid reputation as a master craftsman and building contractor is a result of his strong work ethic, personal integrity, attention to detail and thoughtful management of each project during the building process. Loren's goal is for every stair to be a fine piece of furniture and a source of pride for the owner.

The clearest testimonial to the success of our work is in the stairs we have created and the professional relationships with architects Stuart Silk, Gelotte Hommas, and Conard Romano to name a few. Our stairs are in homes built by Toth Construction, McKinney Group, Dahlstrom Builders, Hamish Anderson Custom Homes, Mercer Builders, Prestige Custom Builders, Schultz | Miller, WestHill, Gaspar's Construction, DLH Construction and others. Houseofforgings.net has the widest selection of metal baluster styles and color, with a very handy design tool.

Our work has been published in several magazines including Lux, Pacific NW Magazine and Fine Homes.

We have an extensive portfolio and material suppliers' catalogues if you want ideas for your new staircase. We also work closely with contractors and architects to build according to each client's unique design requirements. After careful site measurements are taken, we will submit a proposal for your approval.


It is important to all of us at Beautiful Custom Stairs to meet our commitments in order for your project to be completed on schedule. From the planning to the bidding, from the framing to the stair construction, our know-how and time management expertise will ensure that your stair is installed on time and on budget.

Once both sides agree on the scope of work, pricing and scheduling, we ask for a deposit to order materials and begin production.


We build quality - which starts with framing.

In order to assure precision, we like to frame-in the stairs ourselves. This will guarantee your stair meets building codes. Also, we can build complex wreathed fittings, box newels with recessed panels, custom turned newels and wood balusters. If you need metal or glass, we have extensive experience with both stainless steel and wrought iron.


If your custom staircase is a free-standing curved stair, the frame will be manufactured in our shop and transported to the jobsite to be completed. Otherwise, after we manufacture or order the component parts, it is assembled at the jobsite.

Even though we have a crew of skilled craftsmen, Loren Dugan is personally involved in every aspect of a project and insists on high standards of quality.

We are committed to excellence as well as personal integrity and honesty. It is this attention to quality that keeps contractors, architects and clients coming back.
