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.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Melanie Loftus, Healthy Building Science added this to Considering Concrete Floors? 3 Green-Minded Questions to Ask
1. What’s in the mix? When selecting a concrete mix, your construction team will factor in strength and performance specifications for the cured material. They may also consider sustainability factors, including whether to add coal fly ash to the mix.There is some debate over the greenness of coal fly ash. Fly ash is a by-product of coal burning, and it contains heavy metals like lead and mercury. But when added to concrete mixes, it has several advantages, including that it increases recycled content and reduces the amount of Portland cement needed in the mix.

I think I might like a wood beam or some wood trim and certainly these floors call for soft, cushy furniture.
