I laid out my joists so that my butt joints land in the centre of that space, so the joists do not rot due to the dirt and water collection over one. I made like a fetus and i headed out an opening for the clean out. Tommorow i will finish the joists, block, cut the ends and do rim. And then ? decking railings stairs im not sure,
In the fourth picture from the top your beam is looking a little funky,I hope you put a string on it before you nailed your joists.

Now that I have your atention consider notching the top of your post for your 2x8 not 3" but an 1.5" from each side this will space your 2x8's about 2.5" apart better for leting things dry out.

you say a 5-3 span so plenty strong block that space at the center point and add a 45* brace back to each post the block and brace being the same 2.5" nailing the 2x8's from both sides.

You can through bolt your 2x8's to your post and if you really want i to look sweet only notch your 2x8's in 1-3/8" that way the roundness on the edge of your 2x8 is proud of your post it's a better look that takes no extra time.
Wheres the blocks and braces -don't cut corners now

Re: Nicks Deck Rebuild


nick, your beam should have been laminated and sitting on the posts or do a 2 ply and have 1ply let into the beam, by doing it the latter you can have a flush beam where the joists hang off it instead of bearing

its not like ive been building it for that long. I just made the thread early thinking it would go faster, if you were working for my dad you would see how it is, the project has completely stopped now, for no reason. stop and start x 20 adds up time

So after this deck are you only going to build round decks because the rectangle ones are beneath you

I should point out that I'm just kidding,your doing a good job.
