This a set of stairs built to replace the bridge that went to the pool ( which was removed). The last picture is of Tim and me hoisting up the section of the bridge that was recut shorter and to 90 degrees to fit up and became the top landing of the stairs. The wood is treated pine with plastic decking used for the top of the railing to prevent splintering that you get from pine when it ages. This was a fun project and challenging to make it so it did not land past the corner of the house. It will be stained to match the deck this year.

Very nice useful project – gotta love those.
