What does the design have to do with it? You simply put the pieces in so they are less than 4" apart. Here is the link to the IRC. You may very likely have a 42" min. rail height, though.

42"/8rails is 5.25" which means that the rails would need to be at least 1.25" thick to get the space between the rails to less than 4". A standard rail thickness would be 1.5".


Don't stop looking for a contractor until you find one that already understands this simple concept.

Thank you Fred! I am unsure about the local min. height requirement but tthe material is to be Azek- I don't know if its dimensions limit the thickness? We are continuing to search for our contractor--this is a cottage in MI, & we will be building it from another state, so really need an exceptional contractor AND communicator!

Fans - Did you use an ORB or black colored fan to match the trim of window?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A fire pit provides cozy flames and heat for cool nights. The X theme continues to the balcony railing.
