Stair-nosing: hardwd stair top level subflr help Laying hrdwd?

2 months ago

1. Harwood floor laid, with the top stairs level with walkway subfloor. 2. Mounted railing on wall. 3. Walkway railing(w spindles) attaches 4 rooms..each carped on top of same level subfloor as walkway. This railing is mounted above that top level of the stairs, to allow for laying hardwood flooring
I had some stairs and railings custom milled and installed them probably 20 years ago, with the plan to later lay hardwood in the upstairs walkway, but having some difficulty with the nose level and room connections....
Primarily keeping the top in code, to not be over what 3/8 higher than the rest.
I avoid laminate as this is 178 year old house, and we've been working on it for maybe 40 years...the amount of time we've lived here really.
Anybody help here?
