Hi
I am trying to frame a new picture frame deck in my house.
I am looking for some help on how I should frame the joints that is coming over the crawl space vents without blocking them.
Can you please suggest how I should frame the joists?
In the pic, the black line on the vents is where the top level of the joist comes to be leveled.
Thanks for your help

You are awfully close to the ground.
You will be hanging a joist in front of the vent but not attaching to the house?

Yes. It is a deck that is about 12" above grade. The vent that i am showing is actually on perpendicular to the side where I am attaching with the ledger board. It is the portion that is in the red marked section of this drawing.

#1, I'd be building this as a free standing deck so there 0 chance of damage to the home.
#2, I'd also be replacing that old vent with a new auto opening vent for more air flow.

You'll need to leave the vents blank, then "hanger" a header a few inches out from them.
