Lifting deck – step down is way too high.
Hello- we hired a total hack of a builder to build us a very small deck 5×8 that you get to via a sliding door in our house. The drop down is currently a 10 inch step down!! 10!! We need to raise it for obvious reasons but really prefer not to have to take it all completely apart and rebuild. Our current carpenter doesn’t seem to have any creative ideas. Can’t we just take the main frame off the ledger board and then raise the whole thing (probably with new posts)? Would love to find some creative yet up to code ideas to share with him!!! Thank you!!
