My current stairs are 36" wide. The treads are 11 3/4" deep and 1 1/8" thick. The risers are 6 3/4" tall. I would like to rebuild the stairs so that I can eliminate the 3rd stringer. I would like to do this because I want to build in drawers with the front of the drawer being the riser. Seems to me if I use thicker treads (3"), I could eliminate the 3rd stringer to make room for a drawer?
