New porch stairs with aspen log railings

Another small project this week. The old stairs had seen many years of water /snow damage from the roof line directly above. The old steps fell a bit short of the poured concrete landing. Here the addition of 1 more step puts them right on target.
The HO will sand and paint the aspen log rails this fall if the weather holds up...a few snow flakes were in the air during this build.
New stairs and rails to match the old
