Fieldstone Steps

Fieldstone steps, below.  Pure labor, no mortar/concrete.
Cheapest choice when I began my career.  Now, depending upon the jobsite, pre-cut stone is cheaper.  Easier to handle they reduce labor expense.
Of course, my favorite, is field stone.
Oddly, at the front end of availability pre-cut stone steps were the most expensive.  
More odd, I meet people now, who think field stone steps are, by far, the cheaper choice.

Found the pic online.  Must put in some days taking pics of our projects, good excuse to see them again too.

Tara, Georgeous. I did a flat rock sidewalk to the shore line, it took forever and the woman that
bought my home tore it out because
she didn't wand to weedwack it.
Your steps age so pretty.
Happy Thanksgiving, and hope for a mild winter.
