    Hi All,

    We have recently had outward opening french doors installed at the rear of our house. The installer let us know that we need to have an initial step of 1.2M level in front of the door to allow them to open. I am looking now at how best to achieve this.

    I could try and destroy what is there, but if that is the only way I will need to pay a contractor.

    I have thought about just pouring over the existing steps, but I do not like that there would be a join into which water could seep, freeze and crack.

    Another option would be to build a block wall on the last step and use a block and beam type method to span the first step to the new block wall.

    But ultimately I am looking for ideas... How would you do it?

    Cheers,
    Sam
