I would like options other than metal strong ties for a 6x6 post base resting on an interior basement floor. I would also like to avoid metal hardware attachment to the joist header at top. I was thinking a bolt or two in the bottom of post set in concrete, with maybe some plastic moisture barrier in between. For th top, maybe 45 degree members. This will be visually exposed to occupants.
