2×12 slope stairs

Arnie asked me to build some steps beside his house. He lives on a mountain; and the gravel/mulch slope was about 22 degrees. When it’s slippery it’s dangerous. So I drew up a proposal for his neighbour and his Strata to review:

After approval and scheduling (note difference in colour of grass–1 month plus), I picked up a truckload of 2x12s and got to work:

The finished result looked quite close to my drawing!

The steps, being 6 feet wide, have a little bit of bounce…but most of them touch the ground at some point between the endcaps, so they are supported enough.
