Ledger Board

Building a custom house isn’t for the faint of heard.   All looks good on paper until you put the pieces together. Then you need a plan B or C.

We went to attach the deck ledger board and walla, it couldn’t be done.  See photo.

Solution:  sister the third joist and install perpendicular joists.  See photo.
