Extending Length of Rim Joist on Long Deck
I am building a deck that will have the rim joist attached with nails to the end of the joists. It is pretty long (40+ feet) and will obviously need multiple boards to make up the entire length of the rim joist.
What is the best thing to do at the end of each board where a new board will begin? Connect them together somehow? If so what is the best method?
