Maya! Thanks so much... this helps alot. I am new to commenting on Houzz but have often googled images for inspiration and seem to land here. Love this home you have built. The steel beams is beautiful! love the use of all materials and the lightness.
I am a landscape designer and working to detail floating steps over a pond. So instead of concrete we are using 3" jet mist granite slabs (2'x5')...trying to figure out the minimum overhang over the foundation so it apears to be floating without fear of it breaking. I like the 3 1/2" treads you have used with the shadow line of a 3 1/2" rise. Thanks for your response!

One piece of advice I would give is to make sure they are removable. The pads provide great places for fish to hide from racoons.

Like how these concrete steps "float"--but I assume that adds signif cost. SEAN: Trying to get a feel for how our entry will feel if we have stairs up to both the upstairs and rec room. I am open to that solution, esp if the stairs seem to really fit. I also think it's worth considering raising the entry floor to rec room level--as you briefly suggested. It would be nice to have fewer stairs to go up and down, and stairs up to the porch (3 @ 6" rise?). I am leaning toward this solution, unless you have a different idea--it'll have a less disrupted flow, and shorter transitional area. How the design fits together, and/or cost, will decide. If the floor level were high for the whole entry, we could have 1-2 steps down just inside the garage--and for either 1 or 2 we have existing steps we could use. Internal stairs: If the long stairs' "turning platform" consists of two platform steps (5'x4' each), we'd need just one more stair at the bottom--could have a nice platform look, similar to the "BAAN Design" photo above. Or even if the platform were at all one level (4'x10' platform), we'd have just two platform steps at the bottom. But would concrete then work, if it's atop a raised wood-based floor? Or, maybe it's all some type of tile. Perhaps, even, a "floating" platform of tile. I'm open on details. You figure it out. Remember, cost matters here, and I have little idea what things cost--and so don't want to start editing my preferences at the get-go. Want to see options and estimated cost differences. Help us save our kids' future college funds, while building a wonderful, inspiring, "definitely good enough" house. :) If the concrete is crazy expensive, tile could be just awesome! I know one guy I talked to said $100/sq ft--not gonna happen! Or maybe there are cheaper ways to get the concrete? The guy I talked to was an artist here on the Island...
