Need Ideas For Stairs


I have a 3 season porch that the customer wants stairs. I'm looking for ideas from all of you. I was thinking of stone stairs,as in slabs, so they would move with the pavers/ground. What say you?

Re: Need Ideas For Stairs


Stone steps sound like a good idea. I like bluestone stairs.
Do you think something like this would work?

Re: Need Ideas For Stairs


Bluestairs will look great there!! as well try to replace your door locks....I contact some guys in Las Vegas who was able to send me electronic locks for security doors for 30% off the original price.
I dont think they do it anymore but try to give them a shot...

Looks good to me. Was going to suggest the same thing. The only thing I would have done different is have them rounded off and up to the corner for more leveled stepping room.

Three risers would need a hand rail here.

That looks good.
