Forced Rail Construction

Mortgage rates are low, so we decided to refinance the house. (Please don't get Jason started on this frustrating process), but in order to get an approved appraisal, we needed a rail on our front porch. This is something I desired when we moved in 8 years ago and I feared children falling off the edge. But, we never did it and the kids survived. Now we are being forced to do it.

Of course, this is one of Jason's expertise, it is just a matter of paying for the lumber and having the time to do it.It was fun to see Tavis get into helping and learning a few things.
In the end, the rail looks great and adds a little more character to our home.
The handrail was a little more of a pain, but manageable for my "semi-professional" husband (family joke).Fortunately/Unfortunately, the bank approved it without it being painted.
Hoping we can get it painted within the next five years or so. JK, honey!
