Default Continuing Work on Deck

Yes, deck ledger boards need to be fastened with thru bolts and isolated
from the wood.
I actually put in a pier system next to the house to avoid the ledger issue,
and also do attach
for strength and brace to house isolated by PVC pipe(3/4") out from house.

Looking good, as usual. I was noticing the new requirements for deck ledger
boards in the local iteration of the latest building code adopted by our
municipality. I just kind of skimmed it , but some of it looked downright
idiotic. Has that been an issue where you are?
