Hi everyone, I am wanting to put a cantilevered extension off of my deck that I have, small extension. Please see the attached file, I could try to explain myself, but they say a picture is worth a thousand words.
Need to be using 6 X 6's instead of 4 X 4's, It's not legal to just attach to outsides of the post
With 2 X 6 joist it better be one small deck, seems way under sized to me.
Use the correct sized joist and you would not need that diagonal if it does not extend out to far.
