Deck Railings

Recommended Posts

I got the framing done for my deck and am trying to add railings but it places them on the floor below (which happens to be the slab on grade).  How can I get them to locate on the deck surface?
Thanks
Alan

Need to know which railings you are using.

I'm confused on your description.  Typically you form a deck using the Deck Railings tool, specified as a Deck room type, let the software auto generate framing, then turn off the deck framing generation and make modifications to the deck framing as needed, so I'm not sure I follow doing it backwards like it seems you've described.

I am using the standard railing -- not the deck railing.

I chose to create my own deck as the auto generated deck looked nothing like my existing deck.  It was just too much work to make all the changes necessary.

Thanks

I'll ask the obvious -- you are drawing the railings on the proper floor, the floor the deck is on and not the floor below?

 

This was discussed sometime in the past 20 months, but I could not find anything via a quick search.

 

Might be time to post the plan, or at least part of it (Edit>Edit Area>Edit Area (All Floors)) to cut out that part of the structure.

Duh -- I feel so stupid.  Thanks for bring me to sanity.  :)  I also changed to the deck railing.
