    I bet those joist hangers are not made for treated wood. I see this more and more, especially with the fasteners.

    Here's four more problems:

    1) Open risers

    2) uneven risers (short step on bottom)

    3) 'Split' beam attachment to posts improper

    4) Handrail not graspable


    Ah, but the agent said it was approved by the town so it MUST be OK
