Check this video out. Nothing like trying to avoid using one of them ugly beams. Just face nail your rim to the posts. It'll hold.

The guy in the video has the same dry narrator's voice that public education videos use.

There would have to be four or five guy's on a job like that.
None of them knew or cared.
WOW
I built a deck for an engeneer more than a few years ago. He said wow, you like to overbuild things.
My reply was, It's nothing personal, but if you and I never see each other again, we're both happy.

That kind of project can be done solo pretty easily. The worst part about that project is the 6x6 posts that are approx 12' tall, I've stood 16'+ solo before.
I'm not saying it's a good idea to build something of that size solo, just saying it can be done.

Thank God no one was under that deck.
The value and importance of a competent and experienced deck builder is underrated by far too many clients.
