I'm going to be getting a job to do some steps in the front of a house. No wall or anything just some steps going up to the door. Probably about 4.5 feet from the ground to the bottem of the door, they originally had 3 steps plus a small platform at the top. The steps were about 4-5 ft. long. I need help estimating how much block I need for this project and maybe some help going about the installation if anyone has some time. Im gonna bulnose the steps and use pavers for the platform. Thanks.

Nah that lady was kinda weird and a pain sense she shorted me $25.00 on that cleanup. I dunno what they are doing at that house anymore....haven't seen any progress so far. This is a new account.
