mounting a beam to a footing w/o post
Yes, I live in Colorado, so definitely in a frost area. Planning on footings 3 feet deep with a pea gravel base.
When you say use a bolt on that side, I would assume it would go through both sides. What am I missing here?
(OK, after a night of sleep, I guess you meant a lag bolt into one side, not a machine bolt all the way through, right? Gotta get more sleep!)
What do you mean by sticky window tape? I was thinking of gluing/screwing the pair of 2 by 6's together to avoid the water problem.
Thank you for the suggestions
