Hope you have been able to finnish this by now but here goes
the stairs need to have the same rise by code with in 1/4"-3/8" depending where you are, so if you are adding 1/2 to the floor you need to add 1/2" to each stair tread but what about the top are you adding harwood there also, if not you will need to add less to each tread to meet the building code each tread could be a little differant to make it work....
