I have a 6' retaining wall and as per code, it requires railing for safety. While building the retaining wall I ask the contractor to install a sleeve every 4 to 6 feets. Now we have sleeves installed, so I can install railing after the wall is complete.
Each sleeve is in 9" diameter. so I'm planning to install 8 feet 6X6" pressure treat lumber. Once post install after 2 feet in the sleeve and 6 feet above. I would be using Reciprocating saw to cut remains 2 feet from top, keeping 4 feet for retaining wall. Is this ok?
Can I use concrete mix ideals used for setting posts and I have to just add
Is 6x6” over-killing here ?
