Precast concrete steps

Postby Elias » Mon Jun 15, 2009 10:10 pm

Hi everyone,i have got a job to do wherby i have to build a raised patio.It is 800mm high from ground level,and on the drawing i have there are 4 200mm(rise) steps leading up to it.The supplier i was going to go to informed me the only steps they now stock have a 175mm rise.Obviously 4 of these steps only total 700mm and 5 of them will amount to 875mm.Does anyone know if there's still a way to use the 175mm steps anyway or will i have to source 200mm steps.Thanks a lot,Elias.
