Support Post Spacing for Eventual Hot Tub on Deck

by William Joyce
(Derby, CT)

I would like to build 16x16 deck using 2x10 for the frame and 3/4 in plywood for floor. I hope to enclose it one day and have a hot tub on top.

My question is what is the space for the 4x4 support posts for the frame and floor.
