patio door construction

I would like to build a two-step fan style steps outside my patio doors. The house was built in 2000, but never had a deck out the back of the house.

there is a section directly underneath the patio doors, and the surface is the tyvak wrapping. It goes down 14 inches, and then about 6 inches of concrete surface from the basement foundation walls. the length is 9ft1inch that i would be using.

two questions, can anyone answer:

1. what type of barrier between the concrete and the house should I use?

2. how far out from the house should I go for the fan?

also...I want to use a paver, should a make a concrete form and put the pavers on top of that???

thanks for the help!!

I can usually interpret what most are saying in here but I have no clue what you are talking about… Fan style step?? As for the rest of your explanation, take a picture and upload it to photobucket or a site like that and link it here.
