Building my first deck on my own in 13 years. Questions about the stairs.
Pouring a concrete pad for a landing. pour it before I cut the stringers to give me a set place to calculate, or after, floating the stringers just above the concrete until it dries?
How to cut and set the stringers? By that I mean, I plan on adding 1 tread up to be even with the top of the joists, making it actually part of the deck. I think I prefer that to dropping a fake rim joist and setting the stairs lower, or notching for the rim joist underneath and around back of it.
Does anyone use any hangers when attaching stringers?
Thanks for any replies. I already have the gray hair from worrying about things, I don’t want to lose it scratching my head over this stuff.
