Shannon generously came by and took some pictures from outside of how things are looking so far. I was going to ask them to use some of the big stone blocks (see the pile to the side in the first photo?) and put them as a step where the gate is, but I might ask if it's possible to make a wooden step, which would probably be better. It may be that the budget is the budget and that no changes can be made now. But it would be nice. It's a big step as it is now. Not as big as getting in and out of the house used to be, but big.
