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.
