The calculations do not change for any chosen construction. the stair starts and stops at exactly the same place.

What changes is cost and quality of final product.

In Canada there are very strict code rules governing rise run and max number of rises without a landing. I am sure that the US codes are similiar.
Something to do with surviving a fall down the stairs.

I have built quite a few sets of stairs using both methods.
short runs 6 rises or less are fine with either design but longer stairs definitely benefit from the stiffer riser in the laminated design.

If the stair is tight to a wall it is easier to achieve stifness using the wall.
A free standing stair is always more flexible.

I will be making a set of stairs to use in my son's shop for a loft storage area. For a shop, they will be built with 2x12 stringers and treads 3' wide. I use 2x4 cleats under each tread screwed and glued to the stringers so as to not weaken the stringers.

I used four 16' 2x12 stringers. I set my stairs buttons on my framing square at 6 1/2" and 10 1/2". One of my stringers the tread depth started getting deeper about half way up. Guess when I do my finish work on the stairs I'll have a little bit of shimming to do.

My rough treads are simply 3/4 osb ripped to 12" wide strips.

I will be building out a closet under the stairs for storage.

I forgot my camera but it came out ok for never building stairs before.

You're making good progress and it's looking good, Tim!

Don't forget to incorporate bracing for the stripper pole!
