Re: A day in the life of a deck builder


Awesome job.

Ever think of putting in (or offering to put in) a brass pole or slide?

The landing. Unfortunately there was no way around that small piece.

What a great project. The craftsmanship is excellent, and the finished product is something that you see on TV or in movies. Truly outstanding.

Re: A day in the life of a deck builder


I used this cabling system on a deck recently. I thought it would be formidable, but turned out not to be so difficult once you get it rolling. Our inspector is not fond of them as it tends to circumvent the intent of the 4" spacing rule. He is of the opinion that children can climb the cables and fall over the rail. He hasn't balked yet, but I see it coming sooner or later.

Edit: Oh, amazing job !!

The 'ladder effect' was written out of the IRC in early 2000. There was a huge study done by NADRA and it didn't show any difference between injuries from the 'ladder effect' than any other railing.

In other words they are no less safe than any other approved railing.

Re: A day in the life of a deck builder


That is good to know. Maybe that is why he hasn't brought it up yet. He may not like it, but if it isn't enforceable then he may not.

Don't get me wrong, I always bring it up to my clients and allow them to make the decision, but I also tell them they are code compliant.
