Does Izismile actually know what "hillbilly" means?

Hillbilly apparently means: "Doing work yourself instead of being a no skilled consumer who just pays others to do everything."

Let me pay someone 70% markup on material costs just because I'm too lazy to do it myself.. That way nobody will call me a hillbilly.

Hope they have good insurance. They're going to need it when some drunk falls off that upper patio to the lower one and gets hurt. No railings and not at all to code.

GUARDRAILS. Section R312 IRC 2009
R312.1 Guards required. Guards shall be located along open-sided walking surfaces, including stairs, ramps and landings, that are located more than 30 inches (762 mm) measured vertically to the floor or grade below at any point within 36 inches (914 mm) horizontally to the edge of the open side. Insect screening shall not be considered as a guard.

They look within code.

If they have frost heave in that area of the country, that wall could develop some serious cracks after just a year...

would that be because of the material or the layout?
