My parents needed a step off their deck to help with the 18inch drop. They didn’t need anything fancy, and I wanted to build something rather than use stringers. This box ended up being very heavy, very solid and by coating the whole thing with pressure-treated wood preservative, the colour ended up working out nicely.
For those of you wondering, yes the back piece is a different colour. This is because I ran a bit short on PT wood so I had to make due with a piece of 2×4. It ended up working well anyway.
My folks seem to like it and it provides a safe step down off the deck, which is what they wanted. Success!
