With closed risers it’s not required if the tread is at least 11” under, 11” it is.

Kwickfish or Jiju---(or any one with stair code knowledge)--His bottom step is short---will the inspection fail because of that?

No, the bottom step is fine, all steps are 7". I was just wondering if I could move the TOP step (all 3 stringers) up an inch, making the last step to the landing a 6" rise instead of 7". ...or do they ALL have to be 7", period?

Thanks again everyone!

If he lived here in Tennessee it would fail, the difference here is a max of 1/4 or 5/16 inch, 3/8 inch difference and you tear the stairs out. I don't know why I didn't think about that when he moved his stringer down.

nononono, like I said, right now they're ALL exactly 7", but there's a one or two degree tilt.
No biggie, right?

Your inspector has a bug about you already---make the stairs the same----double check the tread width also.

To make it perfectly level, can I remove one more inch from the bottoms of the stringers, making the bottom step a 6" rise?

The small 'tilt' should be acceptable.

oops, except the top step, there's a 12" space from the landing header to the front of that step. Is that not good?

How would I fix THAT?

There is an exception to the nosing requirements. You don’t need the nosing it the tread is at least 11” deep.

It sure does look better with it though.

This is exactly why pre-cut stringers rarely work.

Then why the heck do they make the stupid things???
If I added 2x2's at the notches, that would give me noses on all the steps.
