Hi, I have built decks before, many of my own and friends but not one like this. I have a friend who bought a mobile home and at the door it is over 4 feet to the ground, where the porch deck will stop is about 3 feet. See picture
The deck porch will be 8 x 8
The subframe will be framed with 2 x 8 around with 2 x 6 joists on 16. The posts 4x4
Can I build a floating deck with one part a little over 4 feet high?
If so how many deck blocks should I use? On a normal one I would use six blocks myself. three down one end and three down the other.


Thanks

I would frame it with 2x8 joists and use 6x6 posts. A step down for the door would help with splash up on the door. At least one angle brace between each pair of posts.
