Stringer Hanger Board Attachment on a Deck
The concrete landing pad below the stoop in front of my house subsided considerably, so I whacked it out of there and am replacing it with a 4' x 8' deck as the 'bottom step' of the stoop, and then a two step run of stairs off the deck to the driveway.
I will be using 2 x 6 joists and the first step of the stairs is directly off the deck, so I will have to install a hanger board to attach the stair stringers. I've read many ideas about how to attach a hanger board to the rim joist, and am not thrilled with any of them. However, if I lay out my posts and beams the right way, I will be able to attach the hanger board directly to the post and ends of the beam.
My question is whether this is okay to do, or if anyone can see any potential problems with doing so.
