The result is that end-to-end deck boards share the 1-1/2-in. thickness of each joist. That can cause problems, especially with wood decks. With only 3/4 in. of nailing surface, fasteners will cause ends to split, and since the board ends have to be tight, untreated wood will rot.
The depths of joists can vary by as much as 3/8 in.; the 12-ft. long 2x10s at your lumberyard may measure 9-1/8 in. in depth, while the 16-footers measure 9-1/2 in. Deck boards secured to uneven joists will flex more and the fasteners will creak and pop.

It’s not as confusing as it sounds as long as you remember that a board foot is a measure of volume equal to a square foot one inch thick. So a 1” by 12” a foot long and a 2” by 6” of the same length both equal one board foot.
If you want to build porch steps, measure from the top of the porch to the ground, then take the total height and divide it by the riser, which is usually between 6 and 8 inches. For example, divide 35 inches by a 7 inch riser to get 5 steps.
Deck boards are typically 5-1/2 inches wide, so try to plan a deck size that won't leave narrow pieces at the ends. Create your design so that the railings are clear of windows and out-swinging doors.
