    Lightbulb Brick Veneer Deck Build Questions

    Hi all,

    In terms of brick veneer and decking, how would you go about designing a stand alone 30m2 deck leaving 10-15mm off the brick veneer? From decking to ground the shortest stump height would be ~1m and tallest point being opposite corner at ~1.2m.

    1. Is there a distance off the brick foundation I would need to keep when installing stump fixings that are to be concreted in? Would it matter having the hole directly next to brickwork if its going to be concrete?

    2. Although I said stand alone deck off the brick, what would be the best way to attach onto brick without a ledger wall? As the ledger wall would not align with internal timber frame behind veneer and so not load sturdy on veneer. Can we attach to brick at lower point under the internal frame and flashing within brick veneer from steel stump, would that be good in terms of termite requirements?

    Cheers

    All depends on where the brickwork has been set on the foundations !
    Brick veneer is laid on a poured concrete footing foundation, sometimes the footing location is somewhat inaccurate. The footing is generally 300-400mm wide, the brickwork can be laid anywhere on the footing.
    Only way to tell is dig down and find out.

    For best termite protection keep the deck totally separate, above and below the deck surface and leave a gap to allow for visual inspection.

    is 50mm-100mm enough gap for visual inspection?
