Deck Ledger needed for non-load deck attachment?


I'll be building a deck that wraps around a corner.
What do I do with the side that doesn't need a ledger?

Run a joist, ledger to ledger.

Thanks,
Would it would be attached to the wall as well or run siding behind it?

What’s the span, you’re using 2x?

Were are the beams located?

The rest of the drawing would help.

I don't have a real drawing yet as the deck isn't fully planed out/
What I'm doing now is siding. I'll probably build the deck next summer but I'm putting the ledgers in now to accommodate the ledger flashing and siding placement.
This newer picture gives a better idea but still far from a drawing I'd bring down to the building department.
I plan on 2x8s on everything with the longest joist span under 8' and beam span at about 6'.
So should I take a ledger to that six foot section or side that wall and place a double joist next to it?
