This is a renovation to Greystanes that I've been meaning to share for a while..
Our new outdoor steps
Greystanes is situated on what is considered a "flat" block for the hills
Which means there is some slope to it
Some areas more so than others..
This particular area had a very bad set of stairs
that were quite dangerous - slippery and uneven
and some risers higher than others
(bad when carrying stuff - particularly furniture)
So here's the trick that our clever chippy came up with
You know those premade steps you can buy at Bunnings etc??
Put it in place but UPSIDE DOWN
so the risers are facing the wrong way...
Then fill the spaces in with rubble etc
Fix the banisters to the sides
and fill in with stone..
or in our case matching vintage red clinker bricks
because our other paths are clinker bricks too...
Sprinkle sand in between the bricks..
lots of work putting in the bricks..
but we are really happy with the end result..
now what colour to paint...
