Railing for Gardner Homes

These rails were finished up today for Gardner Homes of Ankeny, IA. 1 1/2" sq. tube rails and posts coupled with 3/4" round horizontals. The biggest challenge was making sure the 1/4" x 2" flat bar that acted as the flanges that the horizontals terminated into, remained exactly plumb against the bottom newel posts and the trim build-outs at the top of each set of railing. The other challenge was getting the bottom horizontal as close to the noses as possible due to the tread heights and runs being at their maximum making the IRC 6" rule tough to obtain. They're there...but just barely.

These will be powder-coated Bengal silver for a finish. Installation pics next week.
