Prognosis for Survival: Steady
When it came time to discuss railings for the deck, Jeff mentioned an idea he's wanted to try out for a while but hadn't had a good project to do it with — using a wire grid system instead of the black metal spindles he usually uses. The idea with the black metal spindles is that they are relatively invisible to the eye from a distance. The wire grid would also be minimally visible while still being interesting up close and with fewer newel posts. Jeff and I both did some searching for a black wire grid of the gauge and spacing he wanted, but finding the right product at a decent price (without having to order a huge quantity of it FOB Shanghai via Alibaba) proved difficult. In the end, though, Jeff did find the right size galvanized wire grid and it started to go up today.
