Instead of just having a small step, we decided that it would be cool to have a step that would be the whole length of the 2nd level deck and be more of a "sitting" step, with being a little wider. So yesterday Dad and I started cutting the wood for the step and trying to figured out a plan of attack. I didn't quite know how it would attach or what kind of a footing to have for it. In the end, we decided that all it really needed was to sit on some concrete pier blocks.
This evening Tim and I started constructing the step and screwing it all together. When we were done with the structure we temporarily placed it where it would be to see how it would look. It looked great and I was very happy with how it was coming together.
