Default Treated lumber and Liquid Nail

My Dad had some wet pressure treated wood. The stairs were
supposed to be about 7 feet tall, and they made em out of
wet PT wood. When the wood dried, it shrank. Finally the
contractors couldn't understand the problem. Dad took the
shrunken stairs, and took em to the contractor, in a paper
grocery bag. Set em on the desk and pointed to em.

Yeah, let the wood dry first.

as your 8' staircase may only reach seven feet in a month or
