Do you know if the steps are solid concrete?

I've seen some that are hollow - pre-cast.
My sledge broke them up
Do the stairs go all the way to the inside courtyard corner of the house?
If so I'd just deck between the stairs
No snow here.
I don't know if they are solid or hollow.
I can not tell if they were poured with the foundation or as a separate piece.
On one side they go all the way to the corner of the courtyard. On the other side, that you can not see, they do not go to the corner.
I could do a deck that lies on top of the second step, but I still think it would look better if the deck was flush with the door sill.
