I have a question on the front steps. I would like to make the front steps go across the entire front of the house is there anything that I need to look out for? The high side of the porch is 33 inches up, but when I do the final grade it will meet code at 30 inches or less. The walkway from the porch will be removed and a side rail added to the ends of the porch even though it won't be needed to meet code. Don't ask it's a wife thing. I plan to pour a footer for the steps to rest on, and 3 steps or so up onto the porch. Is there anything else that I need to look out for in doing this adventure?
