Deck privacy wall help


Hello,

Saw a post like this, but it sounded as if the poster was more along in the process than me. I have a 10X20 deck on the back of the townhouse, 12' off the ground. On the 10' side that adjoins the neighboring townhouse (ours is an end unit, I'd like to frame for a privacy screen, perhaps a pergola-esque overhang that would go the the 10' and overhang a few feet.

Possible?

How? would you use metal brackets to secure it, like down the outside main deck posts, or will that not work?

Thanks for any ideas or pointers to ideas.

Benb: Without seeing it, really cannot advise on anything .

Securing it is a must.

no, just decided to post, standard 10X20 deck with main posts that stop at joists and 4X4 rail posts bolted into joists, at corners and one in the middle.

I'm not building off anyone's replies, just looking for ideas if anyone has done a project like that.
