you need to know the height from the floor to the top of the floor joists in order to determine the height of each riser. Find it in inches and divide by 11. If it doesn't come out even, cut the top step the remainder.If you have 11 steps and an 11' span, each tread will be a foot. 2x12 is the proper size for the stringers.
