Rework Dysfunctional Entry Steps Into Comfortable Stoop

Steps1B

For some reason carport entry doors come with completely inadequate steps, almost an afterthought, which make it difficult to enter the house with packages

The solution is to cover over the steps with a wood stoop or other compatible material.

The rework does not change the use of the carport, but it does make for a much more comfortable and useful entryway

Here is the same idea executed in brick. The original steps were filled in to make the stoop and new steps built out to the side.

    Hello! I have a stoop that needs some new temporary steps until I can afford to build a deck. If I don’t do this soon, I may fall and at my age that’s a no-no!
    Love your website.
    Give me an estimate of what that particular project cost to do then I’ll have a general idea of what my step would cost!
    Thanks!
