💎☝ Read 💎 Installing Deck Footings 🧱🔥 📐🦺
For our cabin, we chose to construct a relatively big deck so that the we’d have a lot of space to delight in the view of the lake. In overall, we had about 1000 square feet of deck to construct. The front deck was constructed 12 feet large and the covered side deck was 10 feet large. We chose to choose the Trex for the sturdiness and long-lasting upkeep. The primary step, nevertheless, was setting up the deck footings.
We worked with a backhoe to come to dig our deck footings. Top of footings required to be 24″ listed below the last grade for frost defense. Make sure you take care around those energy lines..particularly the electrical channel due to the fact that it’s not extremely deep. You’ll see we had actually currently built flooring of the deck and momentarily supported it with 2x4s. The next-door neighbors were stressed this was irreversible and rapidly came by to the see if we were actually going to support our deck like that. The flooring of the deck was framed with wall mounts and 2x8s. We utilized some Glu-Lams for the front part of deck where we needed to cover more throughout the garage locations.
Whoops….ignored that damn structure drain pipe!
The next action to setting up the deck footings is the concrete kinds. We formed the footings out of 2x8s and the sonotubes. Rebar was set up in the base of footing and a couple lengths were placed in the round part when we put the concrete in.
Footings for the side deck.
We put all the sonotubes complete and had some additional concrete to the dump in base of a few of them.
Once the concrete begun to setup, we smoothed the footings off and placed a bolt that would hold future posts on the footing. The link listed below takes you to the setup of our Trex deck. That concludes the setup of our deck footings.
