A new landing was needed for a front door. Planned in SketchUp, made from impregnated pine boards. All pieces cut and trimmed before assembly. All joints glued, and tacked together before securing with screws. Should last the recipient a lifetime Smile

Looks good Hans.  I assume that the design is intended to allow you to knock snow and debris off of your shoes and boots and not track it inside?

Nicely done, Hans. It looks like a real solidly build platform.

Is there a family pet where this landing will be installed? Wouldn’t want to see a paw get stuck.

Well done, Hans.  When you say impregnated wood, is that pressure treated wood?  Is any sealant being applied to the wood?  Perhaps you can post a photo of the landing after installation.

For knocking snow off, yes, as well as dirt. No pets in the household where this will be installed, although with a mere 21mm between the slats it would have to be a pretty tiny paw to get stuck.

And yes, I mean pressure treated with copper salts - it should last 30 years or more if not in direct contact with the soil, while being a lot more environmentally friendly than the old (pre 2002) mixture that also contained arsenic salts.
