In reply to attaching a deck to a log home by Denise Coso on July 20th, 2002 12:53 PM [Go to top of thread]

Denise, I'm not a framing expert, but from what I've heard, log homes tend to move a bit with the wood expanding, and contracting, with the seasons, etc... Why don't you considet making the deck self supporting, and place posts close to the house. The deck boards can be cantilevered and you can end up with minimal gap between the deck and the house, and let the house and deck move independently.
