Great remodel !
Some final project views. This one is the half circle at the bottom step
Hope you enjoyed the pictures.
One more shot.
Did you create 2 pedistals for the stairs ? Looks great.
No i just did one at the bottom. Thank you for your compliments.
Hey, Looks great.
Im looking to learn about pavers and wall's. What does it cost to build something like that. with stairs, 2 walls and a small paver pad.
cost to build
cost to customer??
I charge $30.00 per face foot for the wall with a cost of about $6.00 per face foot plus gravel etc. On the pavers I charge $6.10 per square foot at my cost of $1.44. This includes the installation. Mulch, shrubs, and anything else are extra. This can be a little tricky sometimes. If you have an area where a dump site is not close to or you cannot get a machine into I'd charge a little more. Also some pavers require every linear edge to be cut like the one I did here so keep that in mind also because it adds alot to you time of installation. Hope this helps if you need any more info pm me and I'll help you all I can but I am no means as seasoned as most of the guys on here.
Looks awesome.....do you need to do anything special if you butt it up against the house? Or do you use the house as a starting point? I have someone who wants a wall built and they think it has to be free standing, I told them it starts at the house and you create a U shape, not a box shape up against the wall...let me know. Looks kicka#@!!
I used the house as a starting point because it was the lowest point to start the leveling pad. Just try to keep the stone close to the house so your drainage gravel doesn't wash out between the cracks. I don't know wxactly what your up against but I think a gravity wall or re-inforced wall should work out fine from what you told me. Just be sure you can drain water away from the house if you are making any grade changes. Hope this helps.
