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

Featured Video

In this video I answer a homeowner who, on April 17, 2012, asked about foundation options for building a deck at a cottage on bedrock, which is a challenge to support. I suggest pouring small pads underneath wherever you plan to use a support post. The material I recommend is rigid foam sheets. Watch the video to find out more details.
