Hey there...I am investigating adding a 9x20 deck to the front of our house. I am thinking 4 6x6 posts (mounted on sonotubes below frostline) for front support. We'd eventually like to put a gabled roof over it (one thing at a time)...So I thought the four front posts could serve as support, along with 2 6x6's at the house..

This is a rough make up of the overall design... I am thinking 2x8's might be too skimpy....any advice is greatlyappreciated...

The footings will need to be bigger than if it was and uncovered deck so if you think you'll put a roof on in the future then have the footings sized for the roof now.
