Deck Questions

Recommended Posts

I've got a three story home, deck on the top floor. Will the deck footings and posts not find the terrain like the lower ones? Any sneaky tricks for this?

 

Also is there a way to specify the distance between the edge of the deck and the deck beam?

Posts should automatically appear provided you have created a terrain plane first provided you named the deck room "Deck", if you name the deck room "Balcony" then the posts will have to be manually created.

The posts do appear, but they are hanging in the air As well as the footings. The footings are not interacting with the terrain height. Now if I create the terrain boundary on floor 3 this particular deck works as expected, but then the first floor deck footings do not appear at the expected height. My conclusion is that the terrain must be built on the same floor as the deck in order for the footing height to locate correctly per the terrain.
