Stairs:

Most deck require some stairs.  They can be simple or complex as shown here. We cover how to make stairs in a previous article, but will show you here about the handrail.  Making Stairs

Handrails are usually required when you reach more than 3 risers...the simple stairs to the right have 3 risers, and the ones below have 5. 

 

 

 

       

 

 

Handrail construction is identical to rail construction except you cut the T posts at an angle on top to receive the top rail. Check your local building codes for handrail height requirements.
