Wed... just get's better

We redesigned the steps from the garage driveway to the gate.

I came up with idea of creating a non-traditional drive by adding a series of
risers instead of boring steps and side walk.

The rear pad under the deck was graded for a 2 % drain. The deck will be above and will add to keep the weather out most of the time. This is a place to park the atv, trailer , wood chipper and wheel barrows. The good thing we have the garage door motor is in now. Wireless digital pads plus two controllers.

After looking at the 12 foot shelving I decided to add another shelf. instead of 3 ft between it will only be 2.4'. That will get the most stuff off the ground. We are replacing the first silver gray shelve support with one painted red so you will be able to see it clearly.

Steps from the drive way to the rear gate to the house


We started with the footing yesterday. The block guy came by to build the retaining wall so the steps could be formed
and compacted before the concrete pour. This door leads to the little office downstairs or to upstair guest room.


A better shot from the driveway to the steps. After the pour extra large rocks will be placed next to the concrete steps to finish the wall.
