Alternatively, the brick siding may be removed at the attachment location, and the deck ledger can be fastened directly to the house band board. We do not design for future additions, as we cannot ensure that the codes do not change between when we first engineer the deck and when the addition is completed. We may also design the addition to meet certain criteria which are later changed while in the decision-making process.

Make sure to note the desired location of stairs, any obstructions beneath the deck, and any limitations due to setbacks.
