In this picture, what is the (???) gutter/troth thing on the top of the railing opposite of the house ?
If you look that is a trick of the light
Sun is shining on the that section of 2x top railing
Making it seem to dissappear (blends into the sky)

Looking good! Around here they would require a grasp-able handrail on the stair guard-rail for safety. Also the over 4" space under the open risers would not be allowed for safety reasons. But check your local building department for compliance, anyone, as they may be different. What passes here, may not pass in your locale. I see next year's work, add ridge and soffit vents, close gable vents, and cut step siding to elevate it away from the roof splash. lol
What a change, it looks nice. Good job!
Be safe, G

Yes, grasp rails code requirements are different from town to town in both NH and MA. In some towns it is required on all decks. Other towns (in the same state, using the same code book), only require it on commercial exterior stairs, or multi-family units, but not on residential. I've had inspectors look at me like I have two heads, when I asked them what they want to see (if they want grasp rails installed), on a particular residential project.

Don't forget to also install rafter baffles too, when doing that (part of the equation).
We just did an installation process exactly like that on a roofing project last month.

Yes, it's different here; open webs under stair treads (riser locations) are allowed. One reason is to have a location for snow to be pushed-off, and thru the area.

Siding, very close to the deck surface: We always install a miniumum of 1.5" + above.... But, the HO wanted it done that way. It should be fine, with the gutters installed, and all sides of the new cedar siding sealed.

Thanks for the input.

Yep, the same in MN, at least in the Twin Cities metro area.

I no longer live in the metro; were I live now you only need a permit for a deck if you live on a lake. (just want to make sure you have to proper set back from the shore line.)

I am sure that is going to change soon though.

Nice job Atlantic. When I first looked at the pictures, I thought it was posted by a DIYer and said to myself, "Wow... Looks pro". This is the quality of work that all DIYers strive for.
Could you share how much the homeowner spent on that? Understood if you don't want to reveal.
