Need advice on pouring concrete steps

Looking to make 2-3 steps down into my crawl space and get rid of the cinder blocks.

- Should I make a form and pour it as one big block or, 'layer' it?

- Would it be advised to anchor it to the foundation? If so, how?



Thanks

If you insist on building concrete steps, why not use the blocks? It will save a lot of work. Flip the blocks up the way they are supposed to be & fill them with concrete.

If you are opened to other suggestions, I would go with

If you want something permanent, form and pour a series of concrete steps, in place. You can anchor the placement with a few heavy lag bolts and lead shields, into drilled holes in the stem wall on each side.

Quicker and easier, although not as permanent, would be to build the steps out of wood.
