Mick just check it out and works like I want it to just wish Chief would let us put the support beam out on the end without having to make revisions


Thanks for your help


Yes, the Auto Framing Deck Tool needs some work / more Options , I usually use a Triple Rim as the Beam at the Front so there is more head room underneath for walking or a storage area etc. Unfortunately if you turn off Beams it auto removes the Posts too , definitely not ideal in my case , and making the front wall "load bearing" seems to have no effect , I thought that may cause the beam to build under the railing wall but it doesn't.
