Rail Post or no post
by Concerned deck owner
We had a deck constructed by a carpenter.
He built the deck hand rails and stair handrails with 1x1 spindles supporting a 2x6 top rail. He did not use a corner post or mid run posts.
The deck is 9 feet off the ground. I have not seen a deck rail system constructed like this. Is this constructed to code? I am in CT.
