Entrance of the Hälsingland farms is famous.
I made may own ...
I have used these tools
and worked in lotsa layers....
I like to work with multiple layers and I will suggest a new layer for nearly every step in this tutorial.
I find it much easier to rearrange things and
change my mind or make corrections if everything
has it's own layer ..you can merge the layers when
ever you want.....
Some pictures are shown 50% ,
for a full (and much better) view , simply click on the sample
Don't forget to SAVE frequently ...
Let's start with the stairs ..

I used the color, foreground #E2AD8E and background #BF805D
Select and create a rectangle 150 x 30
(make it wider if you want)
and fill it with foregroundscolor,
create another rectangle and fill with backgroundcolor

Drag the step - layer button over the Create Layer button
to duplicate the layer ..
use the tool to make the new step more wide... click Apply.
duplicate one more time ... and make the new step more wide ..
