Christmas of what year?
Love the deck and railing. Makes me want to replace my crappy looking PT railing. To do that, will be a major deck rebuild as I would want to do new flooring also. How do posts attach to deck?
Didn’t mention year on purpose!
The posts are regular 4x4’s with post covers. I cut a hole in the decking, ran 4x4 to the bottom of the joists and added framing between the joists where needed to level them. I initially screwed the posts into the framing with 3” deck screws, then added 3 1/2” structural screws after railing was up and I knew I didn’t have to adjust the posts. They seem very sturdy with very little movement at all.
Rail sections were 8’, actually 91 5/8”, and I cut equal amounts off both ends to fit. Worked out very well.
Railing wasn’t cheap, but it’s the look we wanted and should be fairly low maintenance other than cleaning.
