I'm looking to replace a set of stairs that were installed by a previous owner. This is a step that leads into the attached garage. It was not made with a stringer, just a 2x10 with some "support" pieces of wood nailed on the inside on which the tread lies.
Another problem is that the full rise is 17". So it's currently comprised of at 7" rise and 10" rise.
Can a single tread set of stairs be made with a proper stringer? And if so, is that a 2 step stringer, each step having a rise of 8.5"?
Thanks for any ideas!
