glass railing and 2x6 supports for stair railing, waiting for the custom ordered glass. Sorry took these pictures before the glass was ordered.
This was my last Trex Deck of 2009, And hopefully the last deck I ever build. I have been building decks for over 15 years. It's time for something new. I own the new tool "The StairGuide" for stairs but maybe I'll write a book or something. Tha
Lighting added under the top cap rail, under all the railing.
This is an example of how all stairs should be attached.
Using stair straps w/ #10 galvanized joist nails. ensure the stairs never drop. I see far to often unsafe staircases.
Multi-level staircase with 6 sided picture frame landing.
Double square overlapping design.
Upper level with single rise step.
Here I am showing the blocking needed for the design in the deck. and hurricane clips I use on each joist to keep the decking flat, not wavy. As well as the wrapped drop beam and Miratek columns covering the 6x6's.
This is a pic showing how the deck is attached to the house and some of the blocking needed for a picture frame split level deck.
