We are designing a deck...it will be 10 feet high, over our basement garage, for a new construction home. It is 12 X12 on both sides and 24' X 6' (the great room is a bump-out of the other 6') in the center = 48' wide. Can we use a header to eliminate the support post, if so, how long can the runs be? If not, often do we need to put in a support post?
