I have just had some piers poured for a new wood deck (piers have 6x
brackets for uprights installed). I am now planning on putting a 350 gallon
hot tub on the deck. Will 6x uprights be strong enough? should I use 6x 10
or 6x12? or will 6x6 be strong enough?
What center should I use for my joists?
I am planning on using the PVC decking for the deck, if that makes a
difference... Any thoughts on this as a material?
Then deck is 124 inches wide and 140 inches long.
The piers on on 6 ft centers and one end will be connected to a cement
footer, and then one side will be connected to an existing wood deck
