Great subject. Building the same thing for a better view. However I do not want to waste the space below. First set of steps up 7 steps 90° to the left then up 7 more to deck. I want to make the second set at a inset full 90° inside corner to the deck. How should I build my stringers without loosing a lot of space below
I have an idea to start at the top inside corner and run a stringer down. The next stringer will come off the first at the second d step. And so on. What do u think.

Proper framing is important
by: Editor-Rich Bergman

One of the most important things to ensure you do is frame the portion of the deck that sticks out from the rest of the deck and to which the stairs will attach to.

This means a double header protruding out of the main framed deck structure with proper joist hangers for all joists hanging off of it. You probably will need a separate beam or beams supporting that small area of the deck also.

But all of this is general suggestions because without drawings and being able to see the real details you have to take these suggestions in context.
