Column/Newel Post Question

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Not sure if I'll even end up doing it....but if I wanted to get rid of the full column that is so close to the corner, and replace it with a newel...where would one start?

 

Thanks!

Yes.  I know if I did that then the other side would want it also, but then I'd have to move the other post to center, throwing off the railing sections.  I guess one thing at a time....if there a way to remove a full post and replace it with a newel?

There may be a way, but I've always done it manually.

 

Have you considered no columns across the front?

Damn, that looks pretty good.... structurally I don't think it would be a big deal to pick that up being a gable.

 

I was thinking manually maybe the answer.  Did you just set the front railing wall to the short posts and the sides to columns?

I changed the front wall to the short post. You will need to draw in a beam.

 

I made a symbol using the bottom of the tall post and have attached it in case you did not already have one.
