stair stringer problem

ctraiderfanOctober 1, 2013


My deck currently has the first step at the same height as the deck surface. I want to change that to the configuration I see online (stepping down to the first step)

However, there are those in power who would like the steps to remain as they are. Why would someone build stairs like that? (as above). If I must rebuild them as they are now are there any special "tricks" to measuring etc.
