The day stayed this way from beginning to end. Barely raining. Rarely not raining.
It was not enough to deter me. A little more figuring and a little more measuring got the footings for the front step stringers in the right location. The 2 x 12 lumber for the steps was placed inside to dry out and the first template for the steps was marked in red pencil.
Building stairs is rather confusing, particularly when you have never built a set of stairs before. It may be a good thing I have been forced to go so slow and think about it, before I make that first cut.
