In Response To: Deck Post Recommendation (Bill Maul)

Local buiding codes would dictate what you shoud do in your area. Also what size and height of deck you are building. In GENERAL a 10"x3' hole WITH cement will be needed for a 4x4 post. Consult with your local building center and building inspector before building. A post backfilled with dirt sounds like an accident waiting to happen. Especially with a raised deck. It is not worth cheating on a good foundation! There are also many books on deck building. Buld it well and it will last a long time.
