    patio VS stairwell

    I employed you to serve us to build a stairwell or patio.

    Which one more common?

    Re: patio VS stairwell

    That's impossible to answer. A stairwell and a patio are completely different things. Have you looked both words up in a dictionary? (We seem to have to ask you that far too often.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    This is a very strange sentence.
    "Serve us build" is unheard of. You employ someone to help you build something.
    A stairwell is the shaft or compartment that contains the stairway. Nobody builds the stairwell only and not the staircase.
    You can build a patio.

    not a teacher
