We have an overhang in front of our house which is currently supported
(not sure how well) by 4x4 regular lumber. They are surrounded by
decking right now but we are about to tear down the deck and replace it
with paving stones instead of wood. It apperas that they are just
resting on top of concrete and laterally supported by the deck, but we
won't know how well they are supported until the deck is gone.
What are our options for supporting this overhang and how much do they
cost? We saw pillars in front of some newer homes around and havent'
priced them yet but they are lovely. What is the correct method of
installing a support for the overhang? We live in a cold area where
frost comes to stay in late November.
