How were the steps formed? - They seem to be each a long block of stone; is that right?

They're giant slabs of stone that were split --- Santa Barbara Stone in Santa Barbara split all of these stones for us so that we could make the front walk. These were the leftover chunks that didn't split cleanly so we used them here to create a transition from one elevation to the next and make the travel between the house and studio a journey.
