As long as we were replacing the collapsed stone wall, it was time to replace the ever-more-tilted concrete stairs that had come with the house. The odd pipes (with their sharp edges!) serving as lamp post could also go.
The first step was removal - pulling the old concrete stairs out and breaking them into more manageable pieces for hauling away.
Once the old stairs were gone, and after digging the right space, it was time to install the new stairs. After years of tilted concrete, it was time for (hopefully) immovable stone stairs.
When the top step was on, Sungiva could come out and inspect it.
There's more to do, building the wall against the stair, putting in a railing and new lamp post, and getting it set up. Even at this halfway point, though, this project is clearly an improvement.
