Exclamation Decks over bulkhead doors

I'm looking for advice/tips on how best to build a deck over the often used bulkhead doors to my basement. The bulkhead is 32"h x 48"w x 60" L. . As the deck will be +/- 41" off the ground I thought to build wooden steps to extend the existing cement bulkhead stairs to under deck level and build trap doors into the deck for access. The existing metal doors will have to remain.
The trapdoors/door will need to extend out 7' from the house into a 12' deep deck and be at least 48" wide. I'm guessing doors because of the weight.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I'm not totally understanding the situation. Photos would help. Post them on a site like and post the URL.
