Project Description: We began by laying out the area to be excavated. There was on old leaky existing set of metal doors already in place. We began digging up against the house along the sides of the old doors. We dug down to the footer on both sides so that we could more easily remove the old doors. There was an existing door into the basement. We continued excavating for the stairs. All of the excavated earth was trucked to a landfill. As you can see in the photos, we hit some serious bedrock that had to be chipped away with chipping hammers. We found, exposed and tested an existing underground drainage pipe. After we were certain that it functioned, we tied our trench drain into it. The concrete footers were formed and poured and the cinder block retaining walls were constructed. Then the steps were formed, poured, stripped and finished. The outside of the retaining walls were waterproofed and the inside of the walls had two coats of stucco applied to match the existing stucco on the house. We also applied two coats of stucco to the exposed portions of the foundation wall. The retaining walls were backfilled with stone. Note: The homeowner hired some one else to install the railings and to install the door at the base of the new stairs.
