I am replacing an existing deck that uses joists cantilevered from the homes second floor. I'm cutting off the part coming out of the house and plan to attach a ledger board. Code requires some kind of bracket that anchors the deck to those joist ends in the house. It seems like the bracket needs to attach inside the house, but that part of the house isn't easily accessible. Is there a better way to attach the ledger board ?
Note: the cut joists are now flush, and that inch and a half of two by four is removed.
