I feel like I have been on vacation from you guys! With the giveaway and Fabulous Friday, I have not written a lengthy post in over a week! I gotta be honest, it has been a nice break. We just always have so much going on. I also had a week in between Master's classes this week so I took a little mental break from writing all of the time. But I have so much to share with you all!
When we bought our house, the previous owner had built a porch and on the stairs from the porch to the basement landing, he did not put a railing. Now it is only a few steps so we never really thought anything of it. Recently, however, we switched home insurance companies. They sent a guy out and he gave us an ultimatum to put a railing on those back steps or not be covered! Yikes!
The first thing that he did was put the post up against the cement footer. He secured it there using Tapcons.
