Building a Free Standing Deck Footing Question
(Rockville, Md, Montgomery County )
The problem I have is that my proposed deck spans from my basement french doors that has a 4 step walk up. I would like to build a free standing deck.
Can I just rest or anchor one of my posts to the concrete slab or do I need to tear that up and put what the code requires 24 deep footing?
It is just one post and I do not really want to attach it to my house. Would this be a problem with Montgomery county, MD code?
