Hi, this is my first deck, first major carpentry project ( I usually work with aluminum and steel) and I've got some questions. I bought this deck design software and it's kind of a joke but, it has helped me at least get the shape I want nailed down and dimensioned. It's not really helping me on the structure of the deck though. I've got one really long span and I'm unsure of how I'm going to build this. It also automatically chooses to use a cantilever design. I'm thinking because of the low height I will most likely use corner post on all of it.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
