You will be using them the rest of your life. Use extra room to make them comfortable to use, especially if you will be carrying things up and down them. You can always build good storage area under them .

Don't use it while pointing towards your body


point the air exhaust away from you and if it's dirty/dusty consider safety glasses. it's quite possible to blow dirt right back into your face using them.


for a man that knows nothing about them I think you bought a good one.

I'd like my finished treads to be 11-12 inches deep, 6-7 inch rise. The stairs will be 48" wide. There will be storage under the stairs. Part of it will be my kitchen pantry. I'm hoping 16 foot long stringers will be enough.

What is your overall height floor to floor?

This is one part of your build where your floor is your friend.
Set out the rise/run of the steps and the stringers at actual size on your floor, make any adjustments to make it all work, then cut everything out knowing that it will fit correctly.

When I build stairs I do not cut the stringers instead I build a laminated stringer using 2 2X6 outside plates.
I rip all the risers and cut them to rough length of run + 12 inches. The stringers are cut and fitted to the opening two per finished stringer.
The first rise is shorter by the thickness of the tread to make all rises the same.
Put the short riser on one stringer with the tread width less kick space then fasten each riser tight to the one below with the same stick out. After all risers are placed place a second riser on top and nail it on.
when youj are finished your riser will have 2 uncut 2X6 stringers and will be far stronger than a 2 X 12 with chunks cut out.

Unless you have laid out and cut stair risers often this method will also be faster and cheaper.

When you make the first one just use one nail in each piece onto the stringer. put it in place and check fit that way you can fix it if it is wrong.

Once you know it is right nail it solid and put the cap riser on also well nailed.
Use that as your pattern for the other riser (s) in that stair.

With a cut 2 X 12 riser if it is wrong it is usually firewood

About 16’3” long stringer lengths.

Terry idea sounds like it may work too.
