Had a back deck that has a walk out basement underneath but the deck had no stairs. The solution was to build a set of stairs off of the back deck to prevent tracking through the house.

They look great Rocco – but one question/observation – shouldn’t you have a handrail on one side for people to hold on to as they go up the steps on their sides? (Sorry I couldn’t help myself for that first picture!).

I’ve got some new steps to make myself – so you’ve inspired me – I only hope mine look as nice.

Thanks for sharing.

Actually the handrail is shown on the last picture. I tried including pictures which showed the progress.

Silly phone cameras !
Looks like you did good job on steps.
The landing breaks the climb. Nice touch .
