I was planning on ripping up my old backyard deck and making a new one myself. However, due to codes in my area (Long Island, NY), I wanted to do a floating deck so I wouldn’t have to worry about it being too high. The part I’m struggling a bit is how to approach the stairs. There’s about a 2 foot drop from the door to the ground. I was thinking of putting stairs right off the house down to a ground level, floating deck. I also wanted to do wrap around steps like this, I just need verification from someone much more qualified than me to tell me if this will work. I also wanted to just get away with using concrete deck blocks as the main structural support for the deck but I’m unsure if I have to set the posts in the ground, that would probably be a dealbreaker for me. Thanks!
