Really elegant, I like the simplicity of the design.. fitted for bachelors...

but I'm more into oriental classic fences... makes me feel closer to
nature... dignified in serenity...

I don't know. Scott did a good job with his stairway railing that uses the same technique, in the German House rebuild thread.

everything is DIY. my first year of DIY, i busted the concrete floor in my basement (800 sq ft), dug it out a foot, and poured a new slab... with rebar and insulation and all. anchored it to the foundation footer. even made it two-levels (middle of the apartment is dropped by 8" for more ceiling height, also looks more interesting architecurally). did that all in my first year of DIY. learned as i went along.

there is NOTHING you can't do DIY, except maybe do a medical surgery on yourself. and forums like this one are instrumental in picking other people's brains... i do acknowledge it'd be real hard without it.

I saw it done on This Old House and it looked fairly simple to install.
I wonder about what requirements are for code; just <4" spacing?

by no means is everything diy,, i know plenty of diy'ers that take on projects that they shouldnt be touching. especially technical things such as advanced rain screen techniqes. i know a few highly skilled carpenters that have installed just such a handrail and its finicky to do they said, best left for someone who specializes in it

as for the handrail. in some regions that hand rail would never pass because each cable is horizontal. when a guard is installed horizontally each tier now classifys as a edge for someone to stand on then the top of the rail must be installed 36"- 42" above that point

The way I understood the code when I built my deck was no horizontal railing elements that could be used as a "ladder" allowed. No space large enough for a 4" sphere to pass through.

By ALL means everything is dyi. Unless you are in that 80% of folks that are dumb category. Otherwise... do you see the contractors that come out to your house? Yea, you can do it yourself alot cheaper and better. Maybe steer clear of major electrical unless you have some background or some internet reading. Torch one first also.

Called exactly what it looks like..stainless steel cable railings,search on net as suggested. Better check with local inspection dept. before buying, as some jurisdictions have regulations prohibiting rail sytems that have horizontal members that can be used as a ladder by kids.

More than likely the case.
