Joists are pressure treated.... I'm in San Antonio, btw.

Can you find a tag that tells you what the treatment is? It is a lighter than normal colour.

If you need the deck code without the fee: http://www.awc.org/Publications/DCA/DCA6/DCA6-09.pdf Regular members may use that link as I don't visit here often enough...

The blocking, other than required over the bearing beams, is only required by the IBC, not IRC. Your built-beams look weak for the spans/loads, check in Table in link above.

TX is under IBC: http://www.reedconstructiondata.com/...g-codes/texas/

Every 8' or held in-line (1x4 works, check locally): http://publicecodes.cyberregs.com/ic...?bu2=undefined

Gary

My blocking is within the 'every 8'' rule and based on what I've read and other comments, I'm satisfied the blocking is OK.

I've used DCA6-09.pdf as a reference from early in my planning (as recommended by you or others on this forum in one of my earlier posts.) The beams check out fine in the DCA6-09 reference.

Since possting this question, City inspection has passed my framining..... I know that's not a guarantee but it's a milestone.

Thanks for your response
