Deck Expansion with Hot Tub
I love the site! I've never built a deck, but am working on plans to help my son-in-law build a deck-expansion onto their new house. The deck would span a steep slope and would be somewhat
Looking from the back of the house, it would be 20' out on the right, 8' wide and 10' out on the left 8' wide with 62' connecting the two sides. This would wrap the deck around the back of the house. He wants to put a hot tub on it or build a hot tub deck.
I am expecting the joists to be 16" OC and the beams to be 6' apart and parallel to the house with supporting 4x4 posts 6' apart with 4x4 45 degree supports (an updside down peace sign). Any better suggestions or ideas? Thanks!
