Wide, Sturdy, Attractive Pallet Stairs:
Even if you don't build a set of stairs all the way to a second floor, these stairs should be good inspiration if you need a porch or a smaller set of stairs for your builds. Please be sure to check with your local planning/zoning/code enforcement to ensure compliance with your building codes. Many stairways have specific requirements.
