My friend had some ugly builder grade stairs in front of his home, the tiles were coming off and it was dangerous, today we dug about 2' around and jack hammered the ends off the stairs to give the concrete something to grab.  we had to take 3" off the top step. we will extend the landing on top and build the steps out, tommrow we will form.

I got to use the Stihl gas powered concrete saw and the jack hammer, interesting but ill stick to nail guns and skil saws.
