House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

HouseTalkN's Top Staircases!

I am a sucker for a center hall open staircase.  The rest of the house can be falling down around the staircase, but an open staircase will wow me everytime.

It's some deep rooted childhood fantasy.  I remember thinking that anyone living in a house with an open staircase, especially if it was in a center hall, well, clearly, they must be the happiest people on the planet.

I fantasized about sliding down the banister as a young girl.  Then came the prom pictures on the staircase fantasy.  Then, the Father of the Bride wedding fantasy.  Just so you know, I also had great political fantasies as well, but this here is a house blog.

My staircase lust has continued into adulthood.  Yes, I realize that a staircase can't give you happiness or change the world or feed the hungry.  I do.  But, a great staircase is a make it or break it for me.

Here is a look at some drool-worthy staircases:

There you have it.  I am a staircase freak.  Anyone else?
