I nee to build a deck at ground level, which means the joists will be slightly above grade. I am planning on using sonotubes. The perimeter of the deck will be 4×6 ptdf, and the perimeter has some 45 degree angles.
Normally the decks I build, the the joists sit on beams which then sit on posts that then sit on concrete piers. I don’t have room for that here. I went through the Simpson Catalog and was unable to locate any connectors that work in this sort of situation.
I was thinking of placing/sinking some trex into the top of the concrete piers. This way I could set the 4×6’s right on top of the sonotubes and attach them to the Trex sunk into the top of the piers.
I figure the trex would not rot like treated wood would eventually. I was hoping someone else had run into this situation and had another idea/ideas.
