    OK gents - Finally got out to the property to get some step pics......I had to do a little cutting/grinding/drilling to get it where I want it. The forward hole lines up fine, but you have to do some finagling to get the rear bolts secured...at least I did. The step seems to be just a tad...

    My first of many Retaining Walls to tame my slope - DIY

    This is the same issue I had when we bought our house 3 years ago. Severe slope, essentially unusable. So I regraded the entire slope (with a dozer) added 2 "roads" one on top, one behind the garage that I built. Not only do they provide access around the property and to the garage upper level...
