When a homeowner purchased a home overlooking beautiful Lake Mallalieu in Hudson, WI, the backyard steep hill down to the lake became an immediate issue. There was a compelling need for mobility accessible access to the lake, as well as the existing old timber and paver stair system was falling apart. Craig Primoli of Yardmasters Landscapes & Nursery was hired as the Project Designer. The architect selected for the project not only specified a trolley system to meet the mobility accessible requirements but also wanted a set of concrete steps to provide longevity and more stability, while creating a safer option for the homeowner. Bomanite Licensee Concrete Arts was chosen to install decorative concrete and bring the vision of the planners to life.
Concrete Arts came in and laid out the outside forms and established the elevations. A series of 18-inch diameter and 6-foot-deep frost footings were excavated and poured for stability. The forms for the riser system were then installed and the pouring was scheduled. There are 49 risers in the stair system. Bomanite Slate Gray Integral Color was used with a custom form liner for the steps to make the edges look like rocks, and Bomacron Regular Slate Texture, part of the Bomanite Imprint Systems, was used for the flat surfaces. Together, these techniques created a one-of-a-kind stair system that is strikingly beautiful yet functional.
