OK so, obv the step were gonna breach 150mm distance but that pretty damn near breached the the actual DPC itself.

I flashed the wall above the DPC at the doorway itself going up the the threshold of the opening but I'm concerned about the parts of the steps to the right and left of the doorway of course with them being the parts that can transport the damp upwards through bricks above. Also the air bricks are bang next to the step.

Should I cut the steps down on the right and left or do you reckon I'll ge away with it?

It looks a modern house. So I would think it will be fine, wouldn't worry about it.

what about the splash back into the air bricks though. Do you think I should flash up half of each air brick just to get a bit of distance away?

Yeah he is chuffed but he paid for it. Bought him a patio heater for xmas which I've given him already and am building him a verandah over next year when I have time which he's not paying for. That's next years xmas and birthday present. The lucky sod... but... he's been a stellar dad really. Deserves it
