Quote from: toohott7718 on March 04, 2019, 10:18:00 AMHello everyone, I'm new here and I had a question about building a porch. I am building a 2 story house and I would like to build a porch off of the second story that extends over to the garage wall. The garage roof is the same height as the house, I used 2x6x18s for the garage walls.The house has a a true 2x12 band board so I know anchoring to that won't be a problem but when the porch extends over to the garage wall there isn't a band board to anchor to. I'm not sure if I would be OK to to use lag bolts to secure the deck ledger board to the 2x6s or not. I would love to hear anyone's thoughts /suggestions
