    Question 1 year ago on Step 9

    I was just wondering how you are supposed to power the door from the outside. I tried doing red stone where the lever was, but since the rest of the Reston was down below, it didn't work. Also, the stone stairs only go down one block, so I cannot get through, sorry for the trouble.
