|As a first step, I drove some stakes into the ground where I figured steps should go and ran string to help visualize it.|
I shoveled out the sod inbetween the lines with a pickaxe and shovel. Too late to turn back now.
|Once the concrete was poured into the forms and cured (in three separate stages)...|
|With the forms off, the steps really started looking legit. But bare concrete is kind of ugly, so the idea was to skin it with pavers and their ilk.|
|I laid out the pavers onto the steps, over sand and rock for the flat bits, and with thinset onto the steps themselves.|
