Getting ready to build a pretty good size deck around my pool. Need some advice.
Deck will be 38' long and 28' wide. 24' pool on one side leaving 2' of decking on the 3 narrowest sides. With 12' of decking on the long side.
I'm having trouble deciding how to make my railings.
If you take 38' and divide it evenly 5 times, you get a center to center measurement of 7' 7 1/4". Should i make my railings even like that? Because on the other side of the deck, I will have stairs recessed into the deck and it will not be the same center to center measurement.
Stairs will be recessed anywhere from 5'8" to 6' back into the deck and 3'6" wide. And those can change if I need to for anything.
I would like to make the post extend from the ground all the way up to make up the railing. I would rather not have separate posts for the rails.
Anyone have any advice on how to make this look nice?
