comment How can I build deck stairs flush with the end of the deck?
Just a follow up. I ended up putting the stringer at the end, and made it flush with the top of the deck. I made it so the top stringer only held one deck board (instead of two) so it was narower. I put the railing on the outside of the joist (next to the stair stringer). This allowed me to have the post flush with the stairs and not get messed up there like the answer below. This way I was also able to create a nosing for the top stair (which is often over looked but probably required by code, even if it isn't enforced).

I think I get what you are saying. I thought about doubling up the last stringer but my railing are inside the deck (doing composite railing posts) so it would make the 4x4s for the railings on the landing part a little offset since I had an extra 2x in there.

I don't understand where you would add an extra joist. Are you saying double up the joist that the stringers attach to?
