New steps

We knew we’d eventually have to redo the front steps when we bought the house a couple years ago. There were just 3 steps that were taller than normal and no railing. With my back/leg issues we decided to go ahead and get it done. TJ and his father have done work for us here at Big Canoe for many years and I’ve always been happy with the results.

TJ has to come back and put the spindles on the railing to match those on the porch and he’ll paint the stairs in a month or so but I couldn’t be more thrilled. They’re so easy to walk up and I can steady myself with a hand on the railing which is great because we go up and down these stairs frequently taking Finn out for his walks and potty breaks!


  1. What a good job to have had done. So sensible to make the new steps fit your requirements. A few years ago my sister had a dreadfully steep step from her back door into the garden. She knew it was far too deep as she was a small lady, beardy 5foot tall. But she kept putting off getting the job done. And of course she had a dreadful fall, fortunately recovered but I could not look at photographs of her face without varying. Well done, Mary.

  2. The stairs look very nice. He did a good job. Stairs can be so dangerous if there off at all. Wise decision to get them fixed…another item off the to-do list.
