Minimum Code for Budget Decks

MINIMUM CODE FOR BUDGET DECKS

Description: The International Residential Code is the “minimum” standard of construction.  A better understanding of this minimum allows for “above code” practices to be more well recognized, but it also allows for consumers on the lower end of budget to still safely enjoy their homes.  Learn some tips and tricks straight from the code that can keep basic deck construction affordable.  Do you really need all that metal hardware and double-ply beams?  Do you have to fill the entire hole with concrete?  Building to the minimum allows more people the chance for a backyard deck and summer barbecues, and there is nothing shameful about that.

Objectives: Upon completion of this course, attendees will…

  • Learn what metal hardware is optional.
  • Recognize the value of affordable construction and how it equates with safety.
  • Discover how to utilize joist and beam cantilevers to maximize area and minimize material.

Length: 90 minutes.
