Yes it's a retractable screen for windows. That's a vaulted ceiling and those windows are high.

Re: M. O. A. D.


with the bottom of the deck getting sealed up do require cross ventilation? if so how did you accomplish it.
If its not needed.. is it because it's steel frame or just code for your area.

Re: M. O. A. D.


The decking has ventilation through the grooves. The soffit I put vents in and it also has all the downspouts vented through the decking.

As far as code it wasn't required by the city.

I agree. I could've made the landing closer to the picture frame but then it would've screwed up the landing rail layout and the connection points. We scratched our heads over that one.

Mike it's awesome rest assured no one could have done better work other than me

I often look over my shoulder and see where I could have done better that's good but that's the rear view mirror and its always 20/20.
Enzo Ferrari hated his old race cars, he could only see the flaws, those same flawed cars fetch 50 + million dollars today .

I have the solution for the next one. We didn't have the stairs there before the decking went down. Next time I'll run the decking wild at the landing and allow the ends to come all the way to the landing. But that was a little hard to know beforehand. First time installing those stairs. Owner thought the same thing. I was stressing over nothing.

We use our cordless bandsaw for all our rails. Maybe we'd cut those with it as well.

Home owners typo. I forgive him. Lol

It's a state requirement. Home owners have to have smoke detectors and carbon Monoxide detectors in thier home. It's needed for any final inspection.

Re: M. O. A. D.


Just battery is all that's required. However this home has a fire sprinkler system. But when it was built CO'S weren't required. So I got the plug in that just plugs into an outlet.

Inspector signed off my final and let me send him a Pic to his cell phone. Helped we we both Politically like minded. My bumper sticker has helped me in more ways than one.
