Deck railing placement.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Is there a way to attach the railing of a deck to the outside of the joist instead of on top of the planking?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Dave

1) Please fill out your Signature -- see below.

 

2) See this thread on ChiefTalk. Depending on your version, some of this may not apply.

The short answer is not easily.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion

I messed around with modeling deck railing attached to a fascia board back in 2009 on the old forum.

As Eric mentions ... yes, it can be done but not easily.  Although if you have practice with the tools, it isn't all that hard either.  The downside is that doing it the way described in the linked post doesn't allow you to easily modify the size of deck or relocate the railing if you need.  Such is the life using custom details.

 

Good luck. :)

Thanks to both of you!  I will give this a try.
