New porch/landing with balusters & rails.


Another project finished! Good job!

I bet Mrs. DM is happy to have it finished too. Ask her if she'd like some Hosta's to plant on either side of the steps (with permission from the dog and cat, of course). I can mail some to her.

Remember though, there's a couple feet of concrete pad on each side. She has some already, but we always enjoy your visits, so bring some more rather than mail them! Po)

All right you guys.... The picture is right there in post #90.... how come nobody caught and explained to me about the handrail needing to be mitered and attached to the sides? So no-one catches their SLEEVES on the ends??????? I felt like telling him (the inspector) that nobody HERE is that STUPID!!!! ....but OK... if that's all the problem is, I can fix that in 10 minutes.

(Yes Ron, I know you mentioned it, but I wish you would have explained to me that it was required and why. It would have been nicer had the inspector found NOTHING wrong with anything here.)

DM, that rail there is a decoy to keep him from looking for a real problem.

Well, after a couple of pictures and explaining it "is" required “twice” I must have been having a “Soapbox Moment” and gave up.

It’s not like I’m the only one here.

Yeah, well….I guess having to deal with the Inspector one more time is your punishment for not paying attention to the details of the plan. Been there done that…

I had a buddy of mine who ran the small rail on top of the heavy rail.

That does look good though, I would be worried about catching the corner of the small rail, that could smart.

Is this kind of hand rail something new, as far as it being required by code? We had our deck built around 2000 and the inspector never told us we had to have one.

The stair hand rail codes have been in effect for many years---However,the inspectors have kind of ignored the code on out door decks-----Danger has a' by the book' inspector--so he tagged the job.

It wasn’t until about 05 when I started getting called on it.
