Now it’s got me thinking.….

DCA 6 shows guard posts on the outside of the rim, but it shows either inside or outside of joist.

2- I thought guard posts were not allowed to be notched anymore, but I couldn’t find it to prove it.


And last one…..If you put a rail on a deck where it is not required, for example on a deck that is less than 30” above grade, must that guard meet all the requirements of a guard?

My understanding is that it must conform to all the standards of a guard, but once again, I was unable to back it up. 😳🤣

Here it is. This is what's new for Cali.

From Glen Mathewson. The guy who helps write the codes. I'm in a Facebook group he's in.

That was really interesting


We don’t have a 507.10 in the CRC yet though.

I will say if the dca calls for no less than 4x4 then a notch would make it less than 4x4.

Makes sense

Talking to my my guy today about posts, and I said I didn’t think you could notch them

I usually put mine on the inside of the rim, with a DTT2

Alright, one a Code question, and one a curiosity question. 🤣

I see you have a post on the inside of the rim. I’ve always done those. I’ve never had an issue with those. DCA 6 Only shows them on the outside though.


Second, what is the row of blocking for on the inside the rim for?

That’s the MOAD if I recognize the pics correctly?

Why would you need that, when you have the DTT2 installed as well?
