Building a deck OVER a porch

Posted by Mickey on August 13th, 1998 01:59 PM

Tom R.,
Thanks for responding. The porch is about two and a half feet high, and used to be an enclosed sunroom until the roof strted to leak, so my friend and I demolished the surrounding area, and roof in order to build a deck over the porch/foundation. It is extremely stable and level, I just don't know the best way to secure a joist or beam for the support of the deck.
I am in Michigan, where as you know the winter can get quite brutal. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
