I am planning to build a second story wood deck in my backyard. It will be approximately 8'x 32'. It will be built using pressure treated pine. The primary question is, how many support pilings do I need and how big. I was planning to use 3 square Pressure Treated 10"x10" support pilings, resting on top of concrete footers. All of the supporting beams, joists and ledgers will be 2x8's (4x8) or 2x10's (4x10's).
Will the 10x10 support pilings be big enough, or is it overkill?
Should I use 4 instead of 3?
