FP,
How are your stairs doing (3' span of 2x)?

Brad,
I've designed my stairs the same way - 3' span of 2x11 (full dimension) with 1x8 risers - and the county was fine with it.  All pine.  My cabin is going to be a bit more rustic than FP's so a little stair creak would add to that ;)

I'm not even near putting them up so I could make changes.  The underside of the stairs are not visible from inside the house so I could add more later to stiffen them up - like a 2x4 cleat (on edge) across the length, glued and screwed.  But if FP says he wished for thicker, I could do it now.

Brad,
I've designed my stairs the same way - 3' span of 2x11 (full dimension) with 1x8 risers - and the county was fine with it.  All pine.  My cabin is going to be a bit more rustic than FP's so a little stair creak would add to that ;)

I'm not even near putting them up so I could make changes.  The underside of the stairs are not visible from inside the house so I could add more later to stiffen them up - like a 2x4 cleat (on edge) across the length, glued and screwed.  But if FP says he wished for thicker, I could do it now.
My stairs have been fine. My structural engineer friend said they would be fine. Although he shared Brad's opinion that it wouldn't hurt to throw something in the middle. I would have thrown a middle stringer in, but I ran out of lumber. So long answer is that I don't have any regrets. I even picked up the dog and jumped around with him on the steps. I should also state that one stringer is glued and screwed to a SIP wall and I know that adds significant support. Risers I will do again... Brad said 1/2 would be to thin. I agree.
Happy Birthday flyingparks!


Thanks!
