After 5 years, Dwayne finished the stairs. Years ago, he dug out and poured—with help—6 tons of cement to make the stairs. A few weeks ago, he glued the last tile on and grouted the last steps. Take a look!
What the stairs looked like in March, 2008.
Dwayne built stairs into the retaining wall around the “First Lawn”. (Technically, it’s our only lawn, because the second tier is mostly weeds and moss, and the third, well, even worse.) Notice the gorgeous detail work on the landing. He worked in smaller decorative tiles to finish it nicely.
Dwayne originally poured the stairs to be equal from top to bottom, but last year, he updated the design to include pillars with lions on top and the wrap-around stairs for the bottom.
The lion on the left is Gog and the one on the right (not shown) is Magog.
Well done, Daddy! We love it!
