woodwork and to provide a movement joint between the wall string and the finished surfaces (Figures 6.9a and 6.9b). The fixing of wooden flights is a matter of propping against trimmers with a housing joint, the base can easily be secured by dowel or coach bolt. A timber apron lining surmounted by a capping will provide a suitable edge trim to wooden floors. The advantage of a wide capping is the better fit that can be made for balustrade fixing, apart from the opportunity to match the profile of the treads at the well location (refer to Figure 6.2c). Landings will need trimming to support wide treads and winders as Figure 6.9c).
