With family coming into town this weekend, we have been really busy wrapping up some of the bigger undone items. We are still far from done, but these porch steps were a big thing to get out of the way.
I am guessing that folks will either say "Cool!" or "Yuck!".
The form and function behind these steps are as follows: The "form" is to tie into my design goal of "contemporary craftsman". The "function" is that since we are in WI, they don't need to be shoveled, only stomp your boots clean.
Of course, this now means we need to get the sidewalk in soon. . . . . *sigh*
I guess these pics also show that the block and capstones are done for the pillar bases, too. Still needed are the thin stone veneer on the bases, the tapered columns on top, and the roof above.
