No real work happened on week 8 except for adding a couple of railing sections. Dad came out on weekend 9 to help with the stair railing. Those turned out to be very frustrating to install and we only got one section completed.
We did manage to get all but one railing post installed and we set up the form and frame for the concrete landing.
If the weather holds for next weekend I might get the remaining level railings in place and maybe even some more stir railings. Plus I'll pour the landing and clean up some minor details.
