I found this image of a porch very similar to our new construction with
a railing that looks to be 24" high or 30" high at the most (not 36").
Look's nice to me! Looks nice and old fashioned. Is there anything
wrong with this that you can think of? Here's a link to an image...
I concur with the "Who care what it looks like ?" faction. You
yourself seem to have so little confidence in your own taste and your
imaginary designer's capabilities that you also fall into that same
faction. If you did care, you'd know what you liked, and you'd build
the damn thing instead of doing stupid Gallup polls on the internet.
You're not paying anyone here. As far as I can tell from your behavior
and the drawings you've posted, you're probably not paying anybody.
People answer your questions - your repeated questions - and you still
keep asking the same questions.
You've developed a new neurosis. Obsessive Indecision is an art form
and you should be acknowledged as the master.
Wow. You're a freak. Save it for your couch time with your shrink,
weirdo. Then you can analyze *yourself* all you want, instead of
people in construction/architecture discussion groups who you don't
even know. Get a life.
As for those of you who have actually contributed objective input on
this and other questions, thank you very much. I appreciate it.
Excellent! You _can_ have an opinion and make up your own mind. I
think we've achieved something here...
I have contributed objective input. From my totally unbiased and
objective viewpoint it's clear that you ask stupid questions or ask
reasonable questions repeatedly - even after they've been answered to
People in three different newsgroups have told you the exact same thing
- repeatedly. There are only two things to remember:
The railing height is dictated by code.
What looks best is a personal opinion.
It's very simple, so I'm not sure why you're still asking the stupid
questions on the same topic.
These are discussion groups about architecture and construction, not
discussion groups about discussion groups. Do you just spend your
hours policing discussion groups, watching for questions and answers
that offend your arbitrary and unreasonable sensitivities about proper
discussion etiquette? I have a feeling you were a traffic monitor in
junior high. Have you ever even kissed a girl? Sociopath.
Check out my posting history in any of the groups where you're posting
your stupid questions.
If that's too much work, I'll summarize what the research will tell
You are the clueless newbie.
That's not unforgivable - unless you take pride in remaining a clueless
that project... <<<<<
Why post a simple question repeatedly? and then get defensive when
called on it?
You're getting the benefit of people's expereince / advice for free....
be a little grateful & don't abuse the system
This is construction not computer programming.....you're overanalyzing.
Fortuately (or unfortunately) lots of issues in construction are
answered by code or approved calcs or custom engineering....so things
in construction generally perform & are generally safe.
Too bad I cannot say the same for the computer programming..
BTW I've done both......so save your flame energy.
I felt good BEFORE my post & I didn't feel any better AFTER the post
& I feel just fine NOW.
You're in need of a little guidance, I really hate to see you waste
your time wandering about...it's a thermo thing..
Just admit you were worng & move on.....you'll feel better.
Try this exercise...say out loud slowly "I was wrong" repeat five
See... it's not the end of your world, you survived.
Or are you never wrong?
