My house is located at 45 Birch Bluff Road in the Hennepin Country in the city of Tonka Bay, MN 55331.
Due to the Ledger board that attaches the deck to the house I will need to rebuild the deck and that will require a Building Permit with drawings.
My plan would be to first add a 2nd support beam like the outer bean which is 11 ft from the house (the prior which is shown 10ft from the house failed and was replaced but has not been taken down yet).
By adding the 2nd support beam which 3 posts at a distance of 3 ft from the house that would allow me to support the existing deck so that I can then rebuild it rather than replace it.
Plan would be once newly supported I would take off the deck boards and trim the joists off at the 2 ft mark. That would then allow me to rip out the existing ledger joist and replace with a new 16 ft long beam.
Once that is done then I could mount new joist hangers and add shorter length joists which would be slaved to each existing joist which had the ends cut off.
Please review the attached pictures, and my plans above and then advise what the next steps would be to employ your services and a likely cost.
