6x6 pergola post ontop of deck floor or from the ground up?
im building a deck with a pergola on one side of the deck. trying to figure out if i should use the 6x6 post from the ground up or could i just set them ontop of the decking boards. if i bring them from the ground up i would have to notch the 6x6"s out 3 " for the rim joist to sit around them. can anybody give me some advice on this thanks alott
thats what i want to do but is there a span limit i can run 6x6 post ontop of a deck cause i atleast want them to be 8 ft and how would i secure them to the deck so someone wouldnt lean on it and it shift ?
