I have a total stair run of 176" and a total stair rise of 72.5". I am thinking I will need a landing 1/2 way down the hill to achieve "standard rise and run".
I am unsure of the placement of this landing, size needed, etc. to achieve uniformity between the upper and lower stairs.
I plan on using 2X12 stringers and will have the stringers attach to a 2 X 8 on the outside of the upper deck with the first run below the top of the deck.
I really need a mathematical genius to figure this out (it's a bit beyond what a calculator and I can accomplish). Any help with specific dimensions is greatly appreciated.
