    That would be a perfect application for artifical field turf. Now you have to lug a mower up the retaining wall. :hammerhead:

    Still looks good though. :cool2:

    I would like to see a closer shot of your steps if you have one. Thanks??

    No closer shots. But its just cottage stone blocks. And the front edge of each upper row is virtually on the back edge of the block beneath it.

    Since each curve changes the length of the row, the gaps don't like up perfectly.

    Also, the "run" is a bit shorter with that size block, so we walk up at an angle. I'd imagine that manor stone would provide enough "run" with each "rise" to walk straight up. But I like the smaller blocks better.

    I believe there is a bridge he can access a mower with...

    Let's see the inside...

    Looks nice, I seem to recall that shed being turned into an office?

    Didn't take long to run a hard wire out there for there.

    The building will be many rooms over the years. Like the Swiss-Army building.
