I am planning a potential DIY job for a new deck that I want to put on my house. This is roughly what I think we want
The house is roughly 36' long and the garage roughly 22'. The door from the house is actually only about 15-16' from the outside corner and I want the deck to come about 11' down the back before the stairs come down from there.
The door is on the first level of the home above the rear exposed basement wall, so roughly 1 story high. The house sits on a hill that slightly grades upwards towards the garage at roughly a 12/3 pitch, so the stairs will only be a half flight.
I am variable on how far outwards roughly I am comfortable with the deck extending from the house.
My question is, what would be the optimum layout for posts and beams to properly support this deck? (Assuming that edges of the deck touching the building will be bolted to ledger boards) I have built a simple square deck before but never anything with outside and inside corners and variable length.
