After this house was built it was up to the homeowner to install deck railings. So we decided to go with a picket style in the front of the house (facing the road) and a glass panel system for the rear of the home (facing the lake). I designed my own framing system for installing the glass panels.

This rear deck only lasted 7 years. In the picture below you can see the deck before the built in planters were installed. After 7 years of poor installation, much of the deck structure was rotten.
