Only downside was that each screw had to be pre-drilled one size under the diameter on the screw. Another was the time involved. The first deck board was 30 minutes. That was improved as I progressed. You can see the fastener screwshttps://imgur.com/a/4mIEfKRHere is the decking once installed https://i.imgur.com/C01bkbP.jpgThe railing installedhttps://imgur.com/a/QQuAQgHI picked up a used set of spiral staircase which I painted and installed at the end of the decking. This was part of an emergency egress. It had to be modified because the previous height was less than my 10'3". https://imgur.com/a/aeaa8l7All in all I am pleased with the results. I only lack making doors for the storage area and this project will be completed.
