Reader Jmillerid just built this sturdy set of steps, and rather than leaving them looking average, he decided to finish ’em up with some bluestone. We like that he didn’t just stop after the hard part was over — he kept going and added a sweet-looking topper to each step and a brick layer for the landing.
The best porch I ever built was made from wood and siding, and it removed the desire to ever undertake such an endeavor again. If this is the end of Mr. Miller’s porch project, we say it looks great — however, we suspect there’ll be more to this still. In either case, its not every day you add something to your home that’ll be around longer than the house behind it.
