I want to build stairs for my deck that look like the attached image. The stairs will come off the deck down onto the grass. I've looked at different manuals, guides, websites, etc. but I cannot find instructions on building these and what the underlying frame looks like.

Clothes taking longer to dry?
Clean the dryer screen in HOT water if using fabric softener sheets.
They leave a residue that impedes air-flow, costing you money.
Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!

I agree, those certainly do not meet the min requirement on the sides but that can be easily fixed. As for nosing, I believe that may be a required aspect for certain city districts, but I'm sure is not required for every deck out there.

^ yup, the floating look is achieved by raising the stair risers off of the stair treads and maybe painting the framing behind it all a black color. if you were to stick your head down at eye level and look up into the stair system in the pic there would be framing behind the decking
you could lay all of the dimensions out on the deck band to determine your stair layout and then plumb down to the dirt, the stairs' sides will be the same tread width as the front so each consecutive step landing is two tread widths smaller.
