...no sanding and painting door frames, no paint touch ups, no cleaning up..., but we do need access to the house from the parking and it is our next big project. So I've been playing around with some exterior staircase designs and these are my favorites. They both take the most advantage of the yard and add some outdoor lounging space. Both entirely inspired by my love of leisure. However we had long decided to build steps into the hill leading up to the existing porch stair to the left of the house, so this is a new idea and Peter doesn't know yet that all I'm doing today is conceiving ideas about how to spend more money.
