Tales Of Cantilever Decks

Today, the cantilever deck is found everywhere, but back in the dark ages the design was considered to be a somewhat radical proposition.

Until I browsed through the archives, I did not realize what a diehard proponent I must have been in those early days, because most of my deck pictures, even those just a few feet off the ground, are of the cantilever variety.

The advantage, then and now, of course, is the ability to build a square frame that is more or less parallel to the attached house without corner post alignment difficulties.
