My husband and I are building (literally) our little retirement cottage and, although it won’t be material for Fine Homebuilding, we’re generally pretty proud of our work. HOWEVER…we screwed up badly when we positioned the support posts for the front porch. The 4 x 6 headers (joists?) meet on top of some of the posts and we can’t leave those intersections unsupported. Can you give us some ideas on how best to move those posts? Thanks.
Careful measuring, precise layout adjustments, and repeated double-checks pay off with a faster, frustration-free build.
