There are so many design and building code elements that go into your deck stairs.  

Stairs With Landings

For 2nd Story Decks Stairs can have a middle landing to break up the steepness while also adding that great appeal. Adding a landing you can also change where the stairs end in your yard as they can be built to any direction.
