I am trying to run an idea here to see if it is possible to build a
backyard deck with a 4' overhang outward from the outer posts. I like
a 4' overhang outward because I don't like to have another set of posts
at the edge of the deck, that way, my two level deck will share just
one set of posts, with the top level edge flush with the posts and the
bottom level bigger, and outward about 4' will make the deck appears
better when viewing from the ground since my basement entry will be
beneath the deck.
