Free standing ........?

Hi, Heather, The base under your house built in 1940,
has settled down ( after 60years), but your new deck will
still be very new, and will also settle, so I think, you
should build you deck free standing, so when after a time
the deck will settle, (move) it wont damage your house.
and by movement I mean about 2"-4" which on its own is
nothing, but when its fixed to the house it may pull away
and do some damage, free standing,or as
I have said in an early post "together yet apart"
have fun,,,,John 2000
