The new Outdoor Stairs series is full of inspiring outdoor ideas, from steps in the woods to a step in the ocean.
Here are 10 steps you can take to make your own outdoor staircase.1.
Place the steps at a 45-degree angle.
This is where the outdoor stairs come in handy.
To find your ideal angle, take a picture and place the steps in your backyard or even in your driveway.
If you want to make a step outdoors, be sure to get rid of the tree and plant that you’ve been using as a step.2.
Use two sticks.
You can use any length of 2-foot or 5-foot-long pine or a combination of two sticks for an outdoor stairs.
If your outdoor stairs have a raised floor or the staircase will require some vertical movement, then you’ll want to add a wooden planks underneath.3.
Use a small metal spacer.
The two sticks can be placed about an inch apart.
The spacer helps keep the staircase from slipping over rocks or other obstacles.4.
Find a path that allows the stairs to rise.
To do this, you’ll need to know where the steps will go up.
If it’s not a path, take it off the ground.
It may be easiest to just use a rope to keep the stairs from sliding up.5.
Add a few extra steps.
If there aren’t many stairs to start with, you may want to increase the amount of steps.
A few extra stairs is always a good idea, especially if you plan on using the outdoor stairway to hike or bike.6.
Build a ladder.
A ladder will be your first line of defense if you decide to make the stairs climb the mountain.
You don’t have to build a ladder, but it will help if you do.7.
Install a railing.
A railing will help keep the stairway from falling and help keep it from falling over rocks and other obstacles, which will help the stairs stay planted in the ground, which can make for a smoother ride.8.
Make sure your stairs have enough storage space.
Make a plan to store your stairs in an outdoor location.
Make them in an area where the temperature is in the 60-75 degrees Fahrenheit range, but keep them away from people or pets.9.
Use the steps for a walk.
As you can see, adding stairs to your hike can be a fun way to experience nature.
For the best result, add more stairs as you hike.

Start with a new design.
Once you have a solid plan for your outdoor staircase, start by creating a new layout for the stairs.
You’ll need a few things before you start: an exterior staircase, an indoor staircase, and a ramp.
The first step is to determine where you want your outdoor steps to start.
You might have some ideas, but you might want to go a little further.
This step will allow you to get your outdoor step design finalized and determine which design will be best for you.
Find the spot you want for your new outdoor staircase and create a plan for how to get there.1.)
Find the right spot.
You could start by finding a place where you can easily access your outdoor and indoor stairs.

Then you could start at the bathroom and add some stairs for the bathroom, then finish with a ladder in the dining room and then add another ramp for the dining area.2.)
Create your plan.
Start by creating your plan to get started.
Here’s what you’ll set up.3.)
