You are quite talented. What color/make is the stain on the PT deck? - I am doing a covered porch, trying to match existing decking. I would love to know the color of that stain, its warm and would be a nice contrast to my dark railing/fence that I have on the property. Thanks!

Thanks for your question. The stain we used is TWP brand, Cedartone 101 color.

LOVE! - This is a praise, not a question. Thank you x 1000 for posting this. I have needed a fence forever and delayed because, well, they are usually really ugly and block the beautiful view of my creek and the amazing moss on the banks. At this very moment, contractors are putting the finishing touches to my new fence that is going to look a whole lot like this deck railing. It is gorgeous and perfect, and I would never have thought to combine these materials myself. THANKS!

Sorry, I didn't see your question. Better late than never. The deck is pressure-treated wood with a light stain. The construction budget was slim, so we had to save everywhere--this was less expensive than using composite decking.

Can you please let me know the name of the farm and ranch store in Comfort? - I have looked everywhere for this online and cannot find panels that are 4"x6" grid from bottom to top. It opens it up so much more than the 4x4 panels I have seen. Our area's code allows 4"x6". Thanks in Advance.

Bohnert Lumber 830-995-3659. They are called "cattle panels" or "hog panels."

I can't comment on building codes in your area. You will have to measure the panels that you find in your area to see if they fit your local codes.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Fenton added this to Rocking Chairs Roll Onto Porches
The owners of this small modern home were so sensitive to its surroundings that the deck was built around a tree on the site. While the budget for the home was tight, the owners sprung for two Eames rockers — a worthy investment.
Christine Tusher added this to How to Refinish a Wood Deck
Who to hire: This is an easy project that you can handle yourself. If you’d prefer not to spend a weekend working on your deck, you can hire a contractor who does deck restoration.Cost: That depends on the size of your deck, the level of soil and the type of wood. If you need to rent a power washer, that will likely set you back between $40 and $200, depending on how long it takes to clean your deck. The brushes, sealant, stain and other materials will probably cost about $150. If you hire a contractor, expect to spend between $500 and $700 for an average-size deck.Typical project length: After cleaning the deck, you’ll need to let it dry for 48 hours, so expect to spend about three days on this project including drying time.Best time to do this project: During a sunny, dry period in late spring.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The ‘Disappearing’ Guardrail
The RulesIt helps to know the parameters that regulate guards so we can artfully incorporate them into our designs. Your local codes may be more stringent, but as a general guideline the national code that regulates guards is the Life Safety Code (NFPA 101), and it prescribes that for any change in height between adjacent surfaces of 30 inches or greater, you’re required to use a guard. If your deck is more than 30 inches off the ground, chances are that you’ll need a guard at the edge for safety. Guards are different than handrails in two key respects: First, they’re taller, at 42 inches high; and second, they’re required to have intermediate members that must be spaced such that a 4-inch sphere can’t pass between them. This apparently equates to something smaller than what the average child can fit through, and it guards against dangerous falls. There are also other, more specific, load requirements (such as it must resist a 200-pound concentrated load), but these are our primary concerns.

One of the more common means of deferring to the view is to use a cable system. There are many types and sizes to choose from. Feeney makes the most recognizable brand, called CableRail. Vertical posts should be rigid enough to withstand the tightening of the cables. I always equally space my cables at slightly less than 4 inches to account for cable sag midspan. Opt for thin verticals to complement the low profile of the cabling. They can be made quite thin if fabricated from steel. The horizontal cables, to me, seem to disappear more than the verticals as our eyes naturally orient to the horizon. Equally, when peering back at the building, horizontal lines often correlate with the siding lines and tend to dissolve even further. MAC Architecture Construction Choosing a dark color for the verticals and top rail will allow the entire assembly to virtually disappear. Vertical cable configurations are also possible. This particular design is extremely minimalist and has no bottom rail at all. Wheeler Kearns Architects SaveEmail Take care to consider the board spacing and cable spacing together to avoid a cable’s landing in the joint between boards.The cabling reminds me of boat rigging and is an especially nice reference point for homes near the water.
