How does the railing pass building code? - Dd

Actually, that would probably be considered a decorative wall. The railing would be on the solid wall on the right. Most home inspectors would cite current building codes, but resale homes built before current building codesmight not be subject to retrofit for things like this. For example, bannister now need to be a certain hieght and spindles need to be a certain distance apart; very different if it was being built today vs. several years ago.

Possibly for the basement stairs, looks like cheap railing.

This is a Saguaro Cactus skeleton. The Saguaro Cactus grows mostly in Arizona and is a protected species, so you basically have to wait for them to die and fall over before you can touch them. The skeletons are quite rare and usually come with a hefty price tag. I lucked out because my parents live in Arizona, and their neighbor just happened to have one lying around. I painted it silver because I thought it would look cool, but I often regret it and think I should have just left it natural. Unless you live in Arizona or are planning a trip there, Craigslist/ Ebay/ Etsy is your best bet.

We cut the slats (rods) out of 4x8 sheets of Bamboo Plywood. The slats are actually 8 feet tall, not 14 feet as described in the article. The framed opening in front of the stair landing is 14 feet tall and is also made from sheets of bamboo plywood.

How are the slats connected at the top and bottom? I'm doing something similar but with 1 1/2" square wood.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: Flexible but strong 14-foot bamboo rods line the staircase for a simple but statement-making bannister. An affordable carpet remnant from a local manufacturer's warehouse lines the steps. Bench: designed by McEwen, built by Neal McEwen
