That looks good, I see a small round dark spot at each step. Are those LV lights?
Yes...they are lights.

An architect designed this deck and, as usual, the plans were inaccurate, vague and not too realistic.

The lattice panels were on the plans. According to the archy, they were to be attached to the posts and girders (ie set back due to the cantilever). Of course, she drew the elevation of the panels from the "easy" to figure out side of the deck. Her method would only work on one of the four sides or the deck, so I threw the plans out and brought the panels out the edge of the fascia.

We made lookouts to catch the bottoms of the panels that were 2x4s attached to the deck posts to catch the plane of the fascia.

hey Greg

What do you tell people about that grill being so close to the rail?

that probably the 3rd most common repair on a vinyl siding job
I tell them to use common sense and feel the railing. If it's hot, move the grill away. If it's cool, then it's OK where it is.

But I do have that talk all time.
