Today I did a little maths and figured out the size of the cantilever off the porch for the redesigned front stairs. I've glued my three flights of stairs together and mocked them up here. I still have some tweaking to do, but I like how they are turning out. I think I will have the top flight as painted wood with railings to suit the porch railing (which I will be changing). The second and third flight of stairs will either be completely bricked in a brown tone brick or have bricked risers and and "concrete" slab treads.
You can't really tell here but there is a decent window well under the porch and first floor bay window, so that the little basement dwellers aren't completely underground.
Can't wait to get this foam encased in something! It's shedding like crazy. I've vacuumed 4 times today!
