In reply to DECK STAIRS by JC on May 24th, 2000 02:32 PM [Go to top of thread]

I like 3 stringers on about 3 foot wide stairs.(I've seen many built with two) One in the middle and the other two just a couple inches or so in from the edge of the tread depending upon your post and handrail design. Use a 12" tread and about a 6 1/2" rise or less makes an easy walking stair for elderly, etc.

Use metal joist hangers to hold the stringers onto the deck joists.
