Is there any way to set the defaults so the deck support beam and posts are not stepped back for a cantilever? I never have a cantilever and usually have a roof over the deck so require supports directly under the roof supports. This situation comes up on almost every plan I draw.
I also would like to know if there is a way to frame the deck in at 90 degrees when it is wrapped around a corner. The program always puts the joist direction the same even when I split the spaces up but maybe I am just not doing something in the correct order.
I'm new to CA,
I was following along with the new deck video on CA website. When I do the deck framing it does not frame right.
In the video it comes out correctly.
We are adding a deck to a one story raised foundation house. The house is already framed. When I generate the
deck framing the rim joist of the house is moved back to the inside face of the stem wall. The deck floor joists are
resting on the sill plate of the house and the house floor joist are now off of the foundation. In the video the house
rim joist remain where it should be (aligned with the outside face of the stem wall) and the deck floor joist are hanging
off of the house rim joist.
Does anyone know how to correct this?
