Adding a hot tub to existing deck
I have an existing walk out 24x18 deck 9' high with 4 lollys in front. I want to to place a hot tub right in the corner closest to the house.
The deck has 2x12 joists and I want to be able to carry the load of the tub with people in it.
Can I just add a support beam supported by 6x6 posts with concrete footings? Maybe use a 2-2x12s for the beam. How wide? What does anyone think?
Should I sister the existing joists? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
