What Dimension of Beams and Joists Should I Use?
I have a space constraint in that there is only 15" between the door into the house and the grade where the proposed deck would go. What dimension of beams and joists would you recommend?
If I use 2x8 beams and 2x8 joists will there be a step up from the house onto the deck as opposed to down to it or having the deck even with the door.
Also, what type of design would you recommend? Inset joists? Joists on beams?
The deck is a 32x12 rectangle.
