A 4” rise would mean a 13.5” run which is like a mini landing. I don’t think I would deviate from that formula much. Handrails are probably more important than altering the step formula.
Yeah, Chuck. A series of mini-landings is what she's after because she uses a walker. The purpose of my drawing was only to see if the size of the platforms she wants will fit into her available linear space. She can give the drawing to her builder so he can see what she wants the platform dimensions to be, then he can try to work out the framing specs.

Thanks for that formula from Old House. It sounds a lot simpler to visualize. It will be useful if I'm ever actually doing the building.

It seems I never finish what I

Thanks for pointing that out, Andy. I only posted it for the Sketchup tutorial value.
