Deck bearing beam location

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I drew a regular deck, and selected the support beam size, posts size, etc... But the beam is automatically positioned 16" inches inward from the edge of the deck, making it cantilevered.

Why is that and how can I fix it, so that the beam is directly under the posts?

Thanks!

That's the way the program is programmed to do it.

Move the beam to where you want it. Uncheck Auto Rebuild for the deck.

I had the same question. I am very disappointed that we cant change this setting.  Home designer really should have a setting for this. Other wise will have to move all the posts and footing as well. Then might as well draw this in old school cad.
