    Default The 2012 IRC on Ledgers

    I'm old enough to remember when the local building inspector's answer to how many and what size lags I should use to connect a deck ledger to a house was, "How about one every four feet?" He wasn't even sure. Boy, have times changed.

    Looks good to me, though maybe just slightly overkill.

    At least I don't see anything regarding tension ties or required to use through bolts. That's just ridiculous crap there.
