My front entry consisted of three concrete steps onto a landing. The whole
business is about 3' high with the landing about 4' x 4'. I like to extend
the existing staircase horizontally form an existing width of 4' to 8'. I
could pour the new concrete to match but that's a lot of concrete to mix.
How do you guys do this? Use concrete blocks, dirt or some kind or rubble
below the landing and poured on top of it?
To be a bit more technical- select fill compacted to a Proctor
density of about 95%. Footings for the perimeter, pour the side
walls monolithically with the stairs or poured separately,
stripped, filled with select.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .
