    Nothing this architect drew up was close to correct in theory or mathematically

    They allowed that distance without a landing?

    BTW, nice clean work. But whats the deal with that stairs from the basement?

    Yes they allow it. Was inspected several times because the owner of the building pissed the city inspector off. As for the basement stairs, they are done. I will post a pic to show you the proper view soon . Was tired and all that is visible from there is that short concrete was and old railing

    We never run balusters down to the band joist. It makes for a sturdy railing, but no one likes the look and its hard to sweep off the deck

    It's just what the customer wanted and what the architect's plans called for. It's a commercial building so I guess they were looking for sturdy....joists are 2x12 too....just a little over kill

    This was exactly what I was thinking when I saw the pic. Other then that, looks good.
