I'm going to build an 8x10 patio deck. I noticed some people use just concrete blocks for footings due to there really not being a frost line. It would be much easier to do it this way. I'm just wondering if that is recommended or up to code. I'm not sure if I'm going to do a floating ledger board or affix it to the concrete block wall. I'm leaning towards the latter. What are your thoughts on footings in Florida?
