How expensive are the cable railings? I want them on my deck so I can see the birds at my feeders.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
I had someone quote me on 9 feet of cable railing with posts for interior stairs at about $4000. Based on the costs of the materials I see at sites like Ultra-tec and Atlantic railing, also at Stair service, I could not understand why the cost was so high. Maybe it takes a lot of time.

Since we don't know specifics, how much are the materials, what type of posts, mounting style, how much is the labor, it is difficult to address. There are systems that are installer-friendly that can reduce installation times.

A popular feature of homes in the area is a wrap-around porch. The sleek lines of the stainless steel cable railing system add a contemporary touch and allow for unobstructed views of the lake.

We felt that white for the Hardie board lap siding and navy blue for the steel roof would be fresh and fitting for the fishing lake, and would fit seamlessly into its context in the wintertime," says Swan. An open door reveals an abstract art piece from Z Gallerie.

The name panel over the door is clever. Nice detailing, with board & batten above lap siding. Dropping the lanterns down caught me off-guard, but the more I thing about it, makes logical sense, to bring the lighting down to a more personal level of the chairs. The cable-rail handrail system is great to allow the best view. A well-done design by Andrea Swan, Swan Architecture.
