Fabricating 9' of railing at a time (4 railings a week), he was able to finish the job in about 3 1/2 months. This fit very well into the customer's time frame! Here are some pictures:
The customer picked this simple design to best suit their needs.
Below are pictures of the stairs leading down into the backyard from the drive. As of January, the customer is still deciding on what kind of design they want for this particular rail. I thought I should upload the before pictures so we can see how much more beautiful the stairs are after the rail is completed.
**note that some pictures were taken and added after this blog's original date, due to a wait on powder coating and other details.
