How to build front entryway steps
I have to make a decision about how to build my front entryway steps.
My frontdoor threshold is 20 inches higher than the outside ground. So I need two stair steps plus the landing area (a small deck).
If I build form then pour concrete, I need about a yard. I am afraid the weight will cause the foundation to settle unevenly.
If I build a deck with treated wood, the curb appeal will be awful.
I am capable to DIY either project by now. However I don't feel good about neither. Could anyone give me any advice? Thanks a lot!
Making them out of wood doesn't mean poor curb appeal:
I framed these ones with PT.
After-ish (before painting and finishing a few small trim details)
Looks much better painted gray and white, but no photos on my computer.
Also they're having a new walkway put in. It will be level with the bottom step.
But anyway, you can get creative, don't limit yourself to pouring concrete or a PT deck.
You don't have to be elaborate to look half decent.
Here is a plain landing with 2 treads, found from google:
