I thought I overbuilt the deck lol. Most of the videos I've seen just show 2x8 boards bolted to 4x4 posts. We also don't have any snow load in my area if that makes a difference. I definitely don't think it is going anywhere with the notched 4x6 posts. It seems a lot more solid that the other decks I've seen in the area. Now, you have me thinking a lot about the railings. I'll have to figure out a way to do or just put stair railings in.
