Stone stairs and patio in Mediterranean style
The demolition work is complete - time to start...
The old staircase has been removed and the site is prepared for a window wall, new staircase and ground covering. The ground is filled with macadam and stone flour and then vibrated for best durability and stability. The next step is to add a few centimeters of setting sand.
Stone steps are created and the paving stone is chosen...
- The steel frame for the stairs is welded and fixed in place in the wall and ground
- The stairs are reinforced with sheet metal and rebar before casting.
- The frame is filled with concrete.
- The stones are chosen - large slabs of "limestone" with a gray hard joint to resist the weeds. The tiles were laid in a layer of setting sand and the joint was brushed into the joints and then watered so that they solidified
The reward - lavender and Mediterranean hot stones!
We were looking for a feeling and found it! The flagstones and staircase are just as bright, warm and inviting as they are by the blue waters of the Mediterranean. An added bonus is that the bright "outdoor floor" forms an extension of the living room.
Paving stairs - step by step
The stones are cut and turned using a diamond saw. Fortunately, the stones are available in a variety of sizes, so we have been able to adapt a little based on the dimensions of the stairs when we ordered. The stones are attached with fixings and joined with an outer joint to become really durable.
