Just got pictures of a beautiful home in Louisville, KY. They used a combination of straight rail and curved rail, according to the shape of their porch. Included in this wood porch is our 6″ 4-piece Porch Rail System in Port Orford Cedar, and the 3 1/2 x 20″ Victorian Porch Spindle in Douglas Fir. Here are the before and after pictures.
Even the poor dog looks disappointed in the lack of a porch rail, which of course is natural. He didn’t make it in the “after” picture, but I’m sure he’s much happier now.
