Cut bottom of stair stringers as required so they will fit into your available space. Sit in position so the horns at the top of the stringer sit on the deck and the channels routed into the stringers are level. Measure the distance between the channels in the stringers to determine the width of your stair treads.
Cut treads to length and, with stringers sitting upside down and on edge, slot treads into the channels within the stringers. Predrill through the sides of the stringers into the treads using a countersinking drill bit, then screw together using 100mm batten screws.
Sit new staircase in position, predrill with countersinking bit, then screw into frame of deck.
Stain steps with 1 coat charcoal decking stain to match the deck.
Stain your DIY stairs in the same shade as your deck to create a cohesive flow from alfresco entertaining to garden greenery.
