Oversized "stadium seating" deck stairs
1 Attachment(s)
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.

Easyest way would be to built a platform 1/2 way down. The platform would act as your step.

Best way I can describe is to build three steps extra wide. At the back of each step install a bench.
