SWMBO wants a pergola added to your back deck. I am guessing that either the
posts have to be removed and replaced with taller ones, or the rails need to
be removed and the top posts somehow tied into the existing posts.
Suggestions, advise, please?
I would (and will since I'm doing a deck and pergola) run the pergola
uprights from where the joists meet the rim joists and go through the
floor. Bolt each upright to a couple of adjacent joists and then block
them in on the opposite sides to make it quite strong. I never was much
good at putting things like this into words, but I think you get the
idea. Maybe??? Mark L.
