Deck installtion
 
hi,
Is it necessary that the deck should be attached to the house structure?
The backyard of my house is sloping by 45 degrees and instead of building a retaining wall and filling with dirt (to reclaim land) I thought of installing a deck with a fence on it. So that the neighbor would have his privacy.
Building a retaining wall is very expensive. The lowest quote I got so far is 30K. plus architects fee for drawing and approval.

I live in Queens, NY, Is it necessary to get city permit/approval for building such a deck.

Tnx
Michael

I think it is not necessary that the deck should be attached to the house structure. and also it depend on your house structure.

What about city permits for NYC and is it necessary to get a Engineer drawing and approval?
