Deck Railing

We got a late start yesterday afternoon so we didn't get as much done as we had hoped. Lowes didn't have enough of the baulisters we used for the deck railing so we had to go to the next closest one, 35 miles away, to pick up enough.

The first thing we did was to install the posts.

Installing the baulisters on to the railings is a tedious, time consuming job. They come with little plastic washers that need to be between them and the pressure treated wood so they dont corrode. I built each panel separately then installed them afterwards.

We had to quit 2 panels short of finishing because it got dark on us.

Those pre-fabricated balusters are really sharp looking! Do you happen to know if they meet the 4" diameter sphere rule? If so they are very cool.

I'm not sure what that is, but if you mean the overall diameter of them it's about 2".
