    No. They are putting a little overhang over the landing with columns. The carpenter is responsible for that aspect. We are just phase 1 of 2.

    That is some big 'ol rock there.

    Question: Concerned the polished surface being slick?

    it looks like finished granite on the polished surface, therefore, I think it will be like that permanently !!

    Its just wet from cleaning it. I always make a concrete leveling pad for granite sets. 8" deep. It took us 4 hours just to set the granite pieces, and the leveling pad was exact.
