    Im looking to do a low level deck with flush mounted beams and no cantilevering.

    Beam in the middle supported by concrete piers going end to end. Should i make one large beam or have two that meet on a pier.

    Side A is a 2x8 ledger

    My question is if i put a pier at F1, F2, D1, D2, B2 will sides G, E, and C have enough support for the joists. Or would i have to put a pier at every point.

    Thank you.

    green is the ledger
