Rebar as Alternative to Tension Wire in Railings


On the subject of sheds and shacks again, I enjoyed this article on a couple who built a 12 x 12 ft cabin up in Canada for their family with two kids and a dog. They doubled their living space by adding an equal sized deck and they used lots of recycled elements and materials throughout. I thought their use of Rebar in the deck railing was smart, thrifty and good looking.
