I have a 20' x 12' deck, attached to the house with a 20' ledger board.
The opposite (long) side is up on four 3' posts. Needless to say, if I
push along the 20' axis, there is significant movement back and forth.
I can run diagonal bracing from the bottom of the posts up to the inside
of the ring, along the outer 20' dimension. What other approaches can I
use to stiffen up the structure?
I plan to use lattice along the bottom front, fashioned in some manner to
let it swing outward - in order to allow access underneath the deck for
storage. So the diagonal bracing isn't the best solution for me.
