After moving my cottage onto a new foundation, my front door is now about 7 feet above grade, naturally I will need to build a deck/stairs to get to it. I would like to pour a small pad for the bottom of the stair risersto anchor to,my question is: Howdo I calculate how far the steps will end up being from the deck before I build them so I can pour the pad?
I assume there is a formula using rise and run? Since I have been out of school WAY too long to figure it out using trig! LOL
