    Default extending a deck

    Hi, I am removing my front steps of my verandah and would like to extend the deck out in a triangular fashion to meet up with one of the existing stair posts. So the new bearers will be attached from my verandah to the existing post at about a 60 degree angle from the exisisting bearers. Is there a bracket available to attach a bearer to a post and the existing bearer ? Or is there a much simpler way of doing this?

    how about some pictures or a drawing? what size are your bearers? what timber are you using? dunno what is available off the shelf for joining bearers. i would be looking to over-engineer it of course maybe some 6mm unequal angle 100mm deep on the long side, cut on the short side and bent into shape then bolted to both bearers
