joist span?

I think you're better off with two 2x12 for beams. The more posts, the better. You're going to have a heckuva time framing the deck up before pouring concrete though.

joist span?

its a vacation house used during the summer mostly. its in a great location the back yard ends at a river where we have a dock with the boats so the views of the river and mountains are great.

joist span?

The deck is coming along, spent 7 days out there got all posts footers poored, beams and joist hung and started on the decking, took 2 of us 7 12hr days to do it. going back out next week to finish i hope. there have been some changes will be adding two additional platforms one for the hot tub 12'X10 and one for a stair landing 4'X4'. will post photos soon or video soon I have been videoing the process. the layout was tuff due to the fact that the deck is going halfway around a round house 1/2 way down each side. the framing ended up about 1/4 out of sq. on the top level but considering its 48'X24' thats not to bad. the secound level was dead on sq. 36'X18 total sqf 1936 very larg but fits well with the river and mountains surounding the house.
