Granite Steps

Yesterday we had these granite steps installed. We bought the granite from a quarry about a mile away. But, the problem was how do we get the get the pieces home. Fortunately we found a mason who would pick the pieces up, prepare the base, and put the pieces together.

The top piece is 3 feet by 4 feet and 7-1/2 inches thick...that's heavy. The pieces on the sides are called "cheek" pieces and they hold the top slab up. The front step is 4 feet wide and 1 feet deep, and also 7-1/2 inches high.

The steps are a bit dirty but they will look good when cleaned off.

  1. It looks really nice after cleaning,because granite steps and granite slabs are more beautiful when they are clean and shinning.
