Oversized "stadium seating" deck stairs

DrewG84December 2, 2012

I recently removed an above ground pool and replaced it with a paver patio. Now, I'm left with a deck that was cut around 1/3 of the pool, that opens up to nothing, just the patio below.

I would like to build oversized "stadium seating" stairs that go down to the patio. The height of the deck is such that a 6 step stringer would fit perfectly, however I want something like 3 oversized steps for sitting around the patio.

Does anyone have suggestions how to do this? Ideally I would use oversized stringers, but that would require boards larger than 2x12.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The easiest way to make custom size stairs (especially since there are only 3 steps) is to make box stairs.
