Seems to have worked...
I needed to build this staircase in the front yard to access to car parking. It involved blocklaying, concreting, rendering, bricklaying and tiling.

Maaate - you've excelled yourself! Looks great.:brava :brava I reckon a few might see that project as not so small though . . .

Thanks folks for the kind words.
I am happy to say that I like the look of it now, much better than the "institutional" looking grey block walls. all up there are 146 red bricks laid as capping to date. This is only a part of the front garden walls. I estimate there is another 400 to lay along the rest of the walls and the rest of the walls to render.
The walls of the house will be rendered in a slightly darker colour (imagine that colour, wet) and the roof will be "wilderness" colorbond.
