    Please post pics of the stair building process.

    I've never built a star run that long on that much of a grade. Would love to see your process

    Oh! We're building steps but we're not replacing the wooden steps going down that slope to the lake. I thought you meant different steps!

    Dvs you need a 150 size excavator. I have no clue how you and others do large jobs without a big machine. I save so much time by having a 22' reach.

    No one's jumped in yet to criticize the install methods? Yawn. Where's the drama?

    DVS do you order your products straight from the manufacture or from your local supplier? Just wondered if there would be a huge price saving by going over the supplier.

    MJK, unless its totally different than my area, you have no choice but to get it from the local supplier.. Just like I tried calling Mr. Coca-cola last week, but he told me to go to Shoprite... bastard

    There is a Unilock plant here. The prices vary little from the distributors and the distributor usually has better stock.

    Unless you're ordering quantities like the distributor you can't get cheaper pricing. They're not going to put their distributor out of business by selling product cheaper than them.
