okay.......this is where I did NOT agree with homeowner...........see the step, not a full step even due to grade between door and bottom of deck steps.........I was not going ot have a step, all on level and about a 1/2" lip at the basement door but he insisted on a step into the basement and mentioned concerns of water even though the house is on a hill side haha........SO that lowered the patio screwing up the posts exposing the concrete that they were poured in.............due to budget columns were not an option so I took pavers and liquid nails to cover the bases

customer is happy, i disagree but who cares, i'm not the one paying for it

here's the post/base...........before you comment on the slivers against the house the concrete step that comes out of the house sticks out that much more than the house..........so on the sides of it i had that gap and had to fill it
