Off Grid...Chapter 133
Hello everyone. This is a story I forgot to tell. I know. How terrible of me, lol.
Mike and I decided to build a set of stairs going from the back of our house and down the side drive. The pavement just gets to icy in the winter.
I will share some pictures with you:)
First we start out by digging holes and putting posts into the ground. We leave one side high for the railing and cut the other side down. Then we screwed in 2x8's for the sides of the steps.
We also add some weed cloth and landscape rock underneath the steps so we won't have to maintain them.
Two thirds of the way to the top.
Looking up the stairs from the bottom.
The stairs are done, the railing is up and the rocks are in place.
The stairs are painted the same color as the house and the decorative patio blocks are in place.
The rocks underneath.
And the stairs are finished.
These steps will really come in handy when it gets too icy to walk up our drive. At least we won't bust our bottoms in the winter:)
Next I will tell you about my 2012 garden.
