Deck steps

Have an eight foot opening for steps off the deck would like them to come down and then have the sides angle back to the deck.  Like half a hexagon.  Please any advise

Good morning.  We are glad you took the time to stop by.:smileyvery-happy:


When building the angled steps off the deck you will essentially be constructing platforms.  The largest of the group will be on the bottom. 



Start by establishing the size of the first step (off the deck level).  This will be slightly larger than the opening and then angled out at 45% on either side. 

The next step (or platform) should be about 12 inches larger than the top one – and so on until you have reached the ground level. 


I hope this helped.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.
