I'm thinking of building a new deck at my new home that I just moved into. It's going to be a two level one. The highest level will be about 3 feet high.
I'm not worried about code because its not enforced here but I do want to make things right rather then change or needing to upgrade it later.
My previous deck was code enforced and I had to make footing 48" below frost line I believe, fill it with concrete and put footing on it.
I've seen my neighbor have a much higher deck for his pool and he's using one of these on 2' x 2' sections of crushed rock / gravel.
I'm wondering if I can use those for the deck and attach my deck to the house using the ledger, vs going 48" down, concrete and ledger connect.
Suggestions are very welcome :)
