I'm making my project list for next spring. I gotta hustle, my daughter is getting married next December and I've got a ton of *censored* to do around the house before then.
My house is on the side of a hill. The lot is terraced. Currently there is an old dilapidated set of wood stairs going from the driveway to the back porch. It's about an 8 foot rise. I want to replace them with something more stable. I'm thinking about block with stone treads. I'm not sure how to do the footers for this thing. Does every step need to be on a 4 foot footer, or just the perimeter of the stairs, or just the top and bottom?
