Morning room - I wish they'd build some steps!

Driving through our soon to be neighborhood, I noticed that RH does not build steps so you can walk out your morning room door. I suppose it is because RH doesn't know what you may want to do with your backyard - patio, deck, etc. 

I'm not sure what we will do, but it would be nice to have simple set of stairs that we can use and have taken down if we build a deck or patio.  It can't possibly cost that much to have this as an option. 

Maybe we can put a trampoline outside the door and jump. 

Here is what morning room door will probably look like. 


  1. I came across your blog via Twitter. I built a simple set of steps on our Sienna last summer:
    It would be nice if Ryan Homes would include this instead though. My wife and I don't really understand why they don't.

    1. Thanks, Jeff. I will be sure to check out your blog.

  2. Great blog, thanks for sharing. We are in drywall on our Palermo in Buffal, NY. They don't give stairs due to the ground settling and liability. Unfortunately we are on our own for stairs. When you take the wood guard off make sure to have the service department patch the holes it leaves when they nailed it on. Good luck! We couldn't be happier with our process to this point in the construction phase in terms of service and quality.

  3. Glad you like the blog. Best of luck with the new home!

  4. We are in the odd group. We have a simple set of concrete stairs. It must vary by region.
