Just off the top of my head.
1. The animated illustration shows dimension lines for the vertical
rise, which go between the TOP of one tread to the BOTTOM of the tread
above it, instead of top to top.
2. It shows dimension lines for the vertical drop going from the ground
to the BOTTOM of the top tread, instead of the top (again).
3. The first step (from ground to tread) has a rise almost twice as high
as the rest. (I would guess, at least 10:6)
If there are so blatant of errors in such critical and elementary
aspects of stair construction on the very first frame of an expert
tutorial, how could one trust (or recommend) anything else on the site?
Was that helpful? :-)
Yes, it was and I thank you for taking the time to point out these errors.
Actually, I should have spotted this myself, especially when one reads the
text and realizes the explanation doesn't match the dimensioning as drawn.
The higher rise on the first step is a puzzlement. Perhap there are going
to be patio stones at base of stairs. (shrug)
