Building some new steps

20180421_152301.jpgHas anyone seen plans for steps with a small decking to suit entry to an above ground Spa? I am no carpenter, but with a few beers and a mates weekend I think it could be done. I just don't know how to begin.

Re: Spa steps

I found sketchup to be a bit daunting. I tried to find a simple CAD drawing programme that you can enter dimensions for the pieces ot timber to be used, and produce a scaled drawing. I don't have any tech drawing tools to produce my own.

Maybe a visit to the local Man Shed might provide me with something.

Re: Spa steps

A search of the online local library as shown it to be in stock. I will duck down after Breckie.
