I am building a deck between my house and the garage. I will support the deck on one side with a ledger on the house and plan to support the other side with a ledger on the garage (with requisite beams in between).
My question is whether or not it is recommended to attach a ledger to the concrete pad that the detached garage is built on. The pad appears to be approx 5" thick (at least on the edges) and either a 2" x 8" or 2" x 6" ledger would hang below the bottom edge of the concrete pad (assuming I would like at least 2 inches above the ledger for decking and gap).
Does anyone have any recommendations for this? Thanks.
