Lowering the front door
I am in the process of redesigning my house and it seems that the only way I can get my stairs to fit and meet code is if I lower my front door 4 feet and create a split-entry. I was wondering how difficult this would be? It seems to me that it is pretty straightforward. I just want to make sure that there are no surprises that would make this very difficult. I currently have a block wall foundation. The hardest part that I can find would be how to match the brick on the exterior. Is there anything else that would fit with brick and stucco?
Thanks for any suggestions,
