Blocking for railing support

I attach blocking to the framing beneath the deck to support all of the railing posts.

Custom-made railing post installed

I attach the first stair railing post. This one was custom-made to accommodate both angled railing and stair railings.

Security system comes online

Weather prevented us from continuing work on the deck, so instead we completed final installation steps for the security system.

Railing posts finished

I install the remaining deck railing posts, and begin adding a few sections of railing.

Deck stairs get railings

Adding steel railings to the deck stairs is more challenging, and will take me more than a day to complete.
