I'd like to tap into the collective wisdom of 5AF:

We will likely be moving to the No.1 school district area. Which means not that big of a selection of available houses, which means nothing will be exactly perfect. My issue: currently, our top choices in our price range have one feature that I hate - a grand staircase, leading to a "gallery" (balcony?) along the whole back side of the big living area. As War of Roses and Omen (part 2?) taught me, those things are not exactly safe - especially since we have 2 very agile, but very young girls. Ultimately, I see 3 solutions:
- put much taller iron rods+rails on the staircase and the balcony
- put some glass panels above the current rails
- replace the rails with a wall

Frankly, I don't like any of those. Have you ever seen any (better?) solution to the above "problem"? Thanks for any advice!

Go floor to ceiling with the rails and name your abode 'Stalag Tomas'.

🤔 💡 Just stomp it down the shower drain.

Bedroom window to roof to gutter. Kids use the backyard.

If you drink enough Elijah Craig no need to stomp
