Patio slab w/ deck box issue


The deck box that I just bought is 41 in long. A bit on the longer side. Since my patio step is also very long it forces the deck box to go about 8-10 inches over the patio. Should I place a few flat, thin brick pavers underneath or just leave it?

I do need to place some compacted brown soil next to my home's foundation as well this Spring.

Why not just turn it so it's sitting fully on the deck?
Is that OSB attached to your foundation?
Is that a pressure treated board under your sliding door?
Does that piece stick out behond the threshold on the door?

I would rather have it sit next to the house.
Step is removable.
Yes it's pressure treated.
Sticks out a bit yes.
