  • wife spec'd some railing around the house

    she wanted the front to look kinda like a tidal wave rollin down the steps.... i built the top side to look a lil more old school ornamental... and yes, it passed code (for all you haters out there...lol)

            Is that a welder on the floor??
            I seems vaguely familiar looking tho
            Perhaps a better shot of that could kickstart my memory.

                  Looks great but

                  Must have a different code than Wisconsin. It appears that there are areas with openings larger than 4" in some of the design. Don't get me wrong, I like what you have done but code is code in Wisconsin and I would have to reject it here based on the 4" rule. Take about a soft ball size and if you can pass it through anywhere, it fails.

                  Just my two cents as an ex-building inspector.

                        hater.....

                        if you look past my railing and see the railing that was existing, there are places that have a 16 to 18 inch gap below it at the steps...... bought the house from HUD as a foreclosure and they required railing to be built on the outside of the brick porch and steps... alas, there are gaps on the front side that are greater than 4 inches, but the distance to the ground is less than 30 inches, therefore does NOT have to maintain the 4 inch center ruling.... the top side (the part that was built a little more old school) does not have any gaps greater than 3.5 inches because the landing is more than 30 inches above the ground..... just my 2 cents as a code inspector too *grins*

                          yes, that "new" machine did all the welding for that railing as well as the 6 other neighbors railings that got built after they saw mine and asked me to build them some...lol...

                          and yes, i can show you how to make stuff like that... wait til i get caught up and back from atlanta, and classes shall resume

                            Thanks for pointing out the height issue. I wasn't trying to take away from the job, I like it, I was just concerned for your liability is the only reason I mentioned it. Wisconsin requires handrails on any stairs of 3 or more risers and 24" above grade. With that the 4" rule is the rule to all spaces in the entire design (or at least it was 3 years ago when I got out of it). Again, not trying to take away anything but you know how suit happy some can be.

                              Very nice! I love to see handrail work that has a random layout. Handrails with consistent patterns look nice but I really like the creative random scrolls. It looks unique.
