First off... I am not a carpenter but since I have nothing else to say ill throw in my 2 cents

I was also not sure what you are building but if it has treads than I am assuming its stairs.  Is the 1" pine dimensional or rough cut? I don't see where having the stringers 1" further apart than standard would really make a noticeable difference. I usually use 2" stair treads but I also over build everything. outside or inside? If it was me I would not use 1" pine because its not real strong I think a missed step or fall could break a 1" dimensional pine board on a 16" span (like on the karate movies). would not be ideal outside in a horizontal plane be cause it rots fast. but maybe someone has a more educated response. I just wing it regularly.

If it is a full 1" thick finished southern clear pine it would be ok for foot traffic. Heavy concentrated loads like the small wheels on an appliance cart with a refrigerator on it may break the 1" boards.

The longevity of the materials is greatly improved by pre-finishing all sides and ends before assembly with the finish of choice (paint, stain etc).

i skimmed the post and saw stringers and not the part that said treads. i built pole buildings for years and thought you meant stringers as in purlins. 17 on center should be fine.

Inside stair case.   They are actual 1" inch pine.   Glued strips to prevent warping.   I cut andt laid them on the stringers.  They FEEL solid.   I guess my choices are:

A)  Install them, hope they inspector is OK with the install.   I can't find guide lines on this...

B) Get oak stair treads

c) Add two more stringers for extreme overkill

I'm not going to build my house for a 400lbs fat ass.  They probably wouldn't buy our house anyway, too many stairs....

was I supposed to say something like "with all due respect", or "don't take this the wrong way" before saying something offensive?

Only if you're under 20

Did you know people are adding the pronouns they prefer to have used in email signatures now? Very odd

I think an inspector may shit if he came to see my work haha. I am glad thats not a big thing in maine. I put the service in on my garage at my old place, that is the only time I have ever been inspected. I passed... Put the treads on if they say something then do what they suggest. spend the extra money latter if it becomes an issue. the extra 1/4 of board makes a big difference. I use 1" pine for roofs and floor boards all the time, have not broken one yet.

I am a big, its my house Ill do what I want kind of guy but I know that is not acceptable in other parts of the country.
