2-Story Great Room with "Bridge" - How to use posts?
In our new home we are going to have a 2-story great room with a "bridge" that connects one side of the 2nd story with the other. The span is roughly 20 feet of railing. (We love 2-story rooms. Please don't turn this into an anti-2-story room post as we are well aware of their drawbacks)
The question I have is do most people put posts from floor to ceiling on the second floor with the railing? And if so do you do the same thing underneath on the 1st floor to match the aesthetics?
