A broke nose?
The risers are 8". The top one is 5 or 6. Unfortunately they didn't want to do the walk over or the porch so it was the only way to connect point A with point B. It's pretty much identical to how it was they are having railings installed soon.

Is that to code there? Here all steps must be within 3/8" of each other. Riser also can't be over 7 3/4".

International building code limits rise height to 7 3/4" virginia has a modification to allow 8 1/4"

However my concern is the un equal height. That is a trip hazard, and liability.

You could have equaled out the risers, without changing the bottom landing. At least to with in 3/8"

Take 5/8" out of each rise and that top goes from 5" to 7 1/2"

Not only that, but the code usually only allows for the steps to vary only so much. I don't have any codes in front of me at this time. But I know most codes do not allow for one step to be 5" and another step to be 8".

That footer doesn't look deep enough for the frost line for NY if they're using a concrete footing.
