I’m building a cottage deck on bedrock. What are my foundation options?

Back in 2012 I got an email from a cottage owner asking about options for building a deck on bedrock. He asked in particular about a foundation on the irregular bedrock of his property. As you can see in the video below, I suggest pouring small pads pinned to the rock wherever you plan to use a support post.  I happen to have quite a bit of experience with this sort of thing because bedrock is never far from the surface where I live. Watch this video from way back to find out more details.
