I have Mikes entire collection of books and DVD,S. I am not able to find dimensions or plans for the up hill patio as a reference. I am building an underground house strictly according to Mikes PSP. I want to also convert the up hill patio into a greenhouse. The space for the up hill patio measures 5 meters length and 3 meters width. What would be an acceptable rise and going for the up hill terrace considering I will be using these terrace steps to grow plants? I will be adding separate steps in the corner for human traffic. Any help would be appreciated.
Mark Brunnr - Thanks for your reply and explanation.I guess I understand the procedure but am not able to visualize the whole picture. I guess I should be able to figure it out as per your description when I will try a trial version just to see how to join them at angles. I guess the post will also first have to be mitre cut at that angle where it meets the beam so that it fits snug to the sloping beam, and then I would make the flat cut into the beam. Thanks for the berm link. I will be posting more questions once I start the trial and then the underground housing build later.
How would you be able to make a mortise and tenon fit when the the inner post and girder meet at a slight angle. I have been thinking about this and all the mortise and tenon joinery examples are shown on perfect square post and beams
