As you can see in the pictures to the left, the stairwell balusters and / or spindles are installed too far apart. Under current building standards, guardrails should have intermediate rails or ornamental closures which do not allow the passage of an object more than 4 inches in size. This can be very dangerous.

In the two photos below, the balusters are missing completely! Current building guidelines require guardrails on the open sides of stairways, raised areas, balconies, and porches. Be careful going to the pool at night!
