Day 4 and we are two steps from completion!  Over 7 hours spent today installing 14 steps.Day 4 and we are two steps from completion! Over 7 hours spent today installing 14 steps.

Day 4 and Mark Seder with Allison & Rodney Pearson started off getting all the lumber cut and drilled at our secret Walland fabrication location.   Then off to the TRWA to start installing steps.  We had planned on getting 12 steps installed but ended up with installing 14!!!  It was a long but fruitful day with only 2 steps to complete the first phase of this project.   Mark and Rodney struggled through a lot of stubborn rocks to set the steps and Allison did a great job of creating water diverters, cleaning up each side of the steps and adding the first layer of fill to each step. 

We are planning on finishing on December 31st! 

If you would like to help offset the costs of materials for building these stairs, you can DONATE HERE!
