What’s a landing, without some Steps . . . and a Deck
OK listen up; it’s follow-up time. Remember way back when in the previous post we were talking about what type of landing I was thinking about for this particular project?
Well now we are getting down to the nitty-gritty. The real deal, it’s now for all the marbles. Now we got a deck, and some steps(in scale) to go along with that awesome stone-terrace, and beautiful sandstone slab steps.
The color areas and the blue writing were added for you, dear readers.
So imagine me sending this drawing(minus your stuff) along to contractor, estimator, and probably client . . .
The notes I made(in blue) for this post were given(s) and not needed to be repeated/cluttered on the original drawing, but I thought they would be helpful for you to flow along with my nutty thought process.
My biggest problem
Has to be with this is the long(7.0ft) run of steps-seems like a lot for “hung” outdoor steps.
The other big issue for me was where to connect the deck to the house(see asterisk). I had the option of several different points to connect and in the end this seems like the best one. If you would have done it differently I would like to hear why/and why.
OK, that’s it, this design is now in the hands of others now it time to sit back and wait-to see what’s next . . .
Addendum: “hung” for me, means exposed stair treads/stringers, etc
