QuoteI believe the common method of what you described is 'the right way' and 'the better way'
Quote from: ajbremer on April 04, 2016, 08:27:01 AMThanks Redoverfarm!Yes, I did use the batter board method and squared up my corner posts but I used steel stakes instead of boards. Youcan see it here:.
Quote from: Redoverfarm on April 04, 2016, 11:27:25 AMYes I saw the steel pipe/rebar you were using for your string line but went back to the beginning and didn't see the batter boards. Yes the post are in line with the string line but I was wondering about the second row of post being squared off the first row. Using the tested diagonal measurement is the only way for this to occur. If you are satisfied Carry On.

Quote from: Don_P on April 05, 2016, 03:18:30 AMSure, there is not a pivot point between pier and post, which is what the Simpson literature is warning about. That is not an endorsement for this, what you are doing should not be copied, simply clearing up confusion about that detail.
