Steel is real

My daughter is having a slumber party in the tiny house this weekend, so my better half suggested I get to installing some railings in the lofts. As in do it now.

I’ve had an awkwardly long piece of EMT (electrical metal tubing) conduit sitting in my garage for years, inevitably blocking the thing I wanted to reach. Light bulb: use it for railing and clean out the garage at the same time! I framed out the EMT with 2 x 2 inch pine reinforced with some Simpson brackets. Under construction:

I finished each up with a 1 x 2 inch pine rail on top. Each loft railing is 54″ long and about 14″ high.
