Cable Rail

I finished the cable rail for all but the deck stairs this past weekend.  A machine shop made the terminals for me from 5/16-24 SS threaded rod.  I made a crimper from an old set of bolt cutters.  The cable is 1/8" SS.

Steel Roofing

I'll probably finish by wrapping the columns in another month or so.  As you can see, I opted against the small gable, but now I know I'll need to put some "snow gems" or other device to prevent snow from sliding down onto the steps.

The next project is to finish the cable railings around the front porch and back deck.
