Building a Freestanding Deck
Hey it’s me again, first of all thanks for the info in my last thread about attached decks, you saved me a costly mistake
now, I want to use these titan foot anchors for my free standing deck, they drill 2 feet into the ground https://titanbp.com/pages/deck-foot-anchor/
im waiting to hear back from the manufacturer about this question but I thought I’d ask to see what everyone thinks here while I wait
The footings for my house foundation are 1 foot in the ground, this Titan anchor puts a large bolt 2 feet into the ground, will that be ok to drill into the ground right beside my foundation footing or 1 foot away from it at most since the footing is 1 foot deep?
other question is since it’s freestanding is setting it off from the house 1 inch fine or should I go more or less than 1 inch
last question, I find mixed results when I search for this online, I see cantilever is supposed to be 1/4 or 1/3 the total span of the joist, what determines wether it’s 1/4 or 1/3?
