Deck stairs
Scott Sawyer
February 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm rearing down existing stairs. Should I move them to left near the window coming straight down beside the deck? Or should I use the existing deck stair on the left, rebuild and tear down the stair to the right?

I can only have the landing near the brick wall and the stairs come down adjacent to the deck. The bay window on the left. Do you agree.

Your sairs separate your yard, right? Is the fence coming down? I guess it would depend on how you use your stairs... Working playing, cookouts or to actually enter and exist the house.

The fence is coming out and moving to the far right, so I won't need the split stairs. Need to know if the stair should hug the deck on left or use the existing step structure coming down to the left only. If the window wasn't so close to the new stairs I would just move.

I would use the existing steps.

That's helpful. What's your reasoning?

If your eliminating the stairs to the right there's no need to move the ones to the left. It will open up your yard to the right and separate and make a little area for a garden, patio or whatever. Giving your yard multiple uses. Play room to the right and a smaller area to relax to the left.

I totally disagree, what a beautiful home and possibility for a soft landing to your yard. I would actually tier the deck alongside your home (to the left.) around your bay window a level lower and wider then the top level and then back down maybe even with one more small deck. Your home is imposing with ll the wonderful strong brickwork, but needs balence. IMO
