Second story deck: stair (rise/run) recommendation

I have calculated two different sizes for rise/ run of my second story deck- either (A) 15 steps with rise of 7 3/16”and run if 10 3/8”, or 14 steps with rise of 7 11/16” and run of 11 1/8”. Anyone recommend one over the other? Thanks in advance for suggestion

I would suggest you go with A. See the stair guidelines in the DCA6. You will need an intermediate support for the stringers at 6 ft. (Maximum span)
