Deck ledger on 120 year old brick building
How should I approach this deck ledger? It will be epoxy bolted into the brick, however, how would you place a ledger against that door sill at the top of this deck? The sill bumps out 1 inch right where the ledger goes. Going for flush with the inside floor if you follow. My carpenter provided attached possible options (it’s a collaborative project). The deck will have a roof on it, ledger will be flashed, will be using the trex rainscape product and have a finished ceiling. I’m looking for this thing to last 100 years like the last one. Most of the deck, with the exception of the core framing, is built with black locust (posts, outside beams/joists), stainless fasteners, etc. Lower landing/deck for example.
