Front porch height to require a railing?
We are restoring a front porch on our old Victorian. Would love to recreate the original railing (as seen in this old pic), but not sure if insurance will let us put up such a short railing. I don't really want the new, tall, and plain railings on this porch.
If I can't do the fancy, short spindles, I was thinking maybe it would look OK without a railing at all. It's not far to the ground--maybe 30" or so. I was thinking I could build up our flower beds and there would be less distance from deck to the ground.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
