Spent the day working on first figuring out what I was gonna do about it (build my own from scratch (which then delves into many paths of how) or buy and install something prefab (assuming I can find anything I think the wife'll put up with!)), then buying and starting to install a handrail for the front porch (It's only been a year and a half since we had the porch redone, and the building codes guy looked askance when he was in last month to inspect our new a/c installation ). Got to use my shiny new hammer drill for the first time - whee! Got the posts bolted to the bricks; tomorrow it's cut the rail-and-baluster combos to length and install them between the posts. Then off to Bartow for tomorrow's metric. W00t!
