If I want to have a granite countertop as a table on top of my deck, do I need to support the 4 corners with actual footing, like 4x4 with concrete? Or it is possible to just bold the 4 legs on the side of the joists?
I have not weight my granite yet but according to this, it is 12.8 lbs sq ft
Mine is like 3' x 9'
I am inspired by this, as I have no design yet.
I don't have the grill in my case but the countertop will be close to the railing. So for 4 corners of the 9 foot long countertop, are they supported by footing below? Or the legs are just standing on top of the joists underneath? UPDATE 1
This is a free standing deck. Conveniently, two legs of the countertop if supported by the posts already. So the question is do I need the other 2 legs supported by posts? Or can they just sit on top of 2x8 joists that are on top of 4x8 beam?
