    I have done a little with timbers for walls. But for some reason not much step building. I need some help with a upcoming project. I need to build some steps down to a lower level(daylight basement). Problem is is that the drop off is straight down. Its about a 10' drop-off. How would I go about building these. Any suggestions would be helpful.
