I know someone that has some shooting houses that are 8ft off the ground. He is wanting some stairs installed. I was wondering what dimension lumber I need to use. 2X10’s? 2X12’s? Can we use 2X8’s? trying to make it some what comfortable to climb especially for the wimmens, toting rifles and coolers and such. How long? All right….. Please hold my hand and let me know what I need to complete the job please and how to do it. Thanks! We plan to use pressure treated lumber.
What about using 2X8 for stringers with 2X6 steps on cleats, with the “risers” or steps at 14″? How would I set that up as far as the angle of the steps if this scenerio would work out.
