    Default Outside Step

    The step from my front walk to the landing in front of my front of the door measures 11 inches. How can I safely make it so that the step will not be as high without tearing out the landing and rebuilding it?

    If your walkway is wide enough, say 3' or wider, you can add a step very easily. Form for a step about a foot deep, as long as your existing step and 5.5" high, mix some concrete and pour into your form. Finish the concrete any way you like, wait a few hours and if dry, remove the forms. Don't step on this new step for a few days. Remember, concrete fully cures in about 28 days, though you don't have to wait that long to start stepping on it.
