Got to love this one. The home owners took the hand rails off so that they could have a better view of the lake from inside the house.

Looks like they still have a “Fall Hazard” at the end of the deck anyway.

Peter,


Just curious: how high above grade is the floor of the deck? And are those sticker bushes?

You really can’t blame people that want to enjoy the view…they pay exorbonant amounts of money for a home on a lake, build a deck to sit out and enjoy the view and then are told they have to put a 36" guardrail up with ballusters at 4" that completely block your view while sitting down.

I don’t know about the price of a view in Louisiana, but I do know that a close-up view of the Pacific in San Diego will take your breath away. Out there I have seen barriers made from heavy tempered glass. Meets all the safety codes and keeps that nasty cold spray off your tootsies.

That’s why the see-through glass or plexiglass railings have taken off for high end new construction water front views here on the east coast. If you paid for the view, you’ll pay a little more to keep from feeling imprisioned behind bars. You can source it from the back pages of a JLC magazine

Peter;

Looks like the railing was never completed to begin with.

If it was, do you think that the 4"x4" posts spaced every ten feet would have held the mandated code requirement of 200 lb.'s.?
