Lighting rod advice
I have a lightning rod question maybe someone can answer. I live on the top of a mountain and have lighting parts of the year but never had any problems. Now we are adding a new addition to the house. A second floor and the skeleton of the structure is iron, which will be covered with granite. The roof will also be iron on the main supports. The iron will enter the ground at 8 points around the structure with 8 I beams that are 6 meters long.
So my question is: It looks like I'm creating a lighting rod but they are iron and not copper and not touching the earth directly. They are in concrete footing about 1 meter deep. Should I put in a lighting arresting system separately or can i attach a wire to the bass of one or all of these vertical I beams and ground it that way? Or is it ok the way it is? I've put some pictures up here to see better.
