Don't need to see it if the railing is too low for local code. If in a
rural area not within a code requirement, have fun. Just keep everyone away
from the edge of the porch.
We had a similar problem restoring an 1890 house in Houston. Old photos
showed a very low rail which looked great. The 42" high guard railings
required by current code look bad on historic homes. Bear in mind that
this was a 1-story condition, not a balcony which could really be dangerous.
Under the Code, 42" guardrails are required when the dropoff exceeds
30", so we raised the grades around the porch to 29.5" and met the Code
and installed 34" high railings. They look perfect!
