Finn looks down off the finished back deck on a foggy morning. Copper post caps by sheetmetalcaps.com (highly recommended!)
The front staircase goes in. We won’t use this much until the retaining wall and pathway are done, but to get occupancy, this was one of the last things on the checklist.
I really like these baluster connections vs the alternative of drilling a million holes in the handrail and deck boards. Allows for taller rail heights with the same length balusters as well. Exterior balusters are 3/4″ round black painted aluminum.
Milly helps Chip bolt together some deck beams, while NEVER ONCE COMPLAINING. Actually she really did enjoy it and did a great job.
Almost finished the handrails for the whole house; these are on the octagon out back. 3 balusters per foot for 130′ of railings x 2 plugs per baluster. Wowza.
