Considering adding second floor balcony off the master bedroom. But will depend on cost. Prefer to cantilever out, but will also consider post supports. Would be about 5'X10'. Ball park on cost? Thanks a million.
A cantilevered deck can be a very labor intensive and therefore expensive way to go. This would involve "rejoisting" the deck and your interior floor 2.5 times the cantilever distance. In other words, if your deck cantilevers 5 feet, the joists need to go 12.5 feet back into the interior living space. This means tearing up either the floor on the 2nd story or the ceiling of the floor below to aloow for proper installation of you new deck joists. Support posts would be a far more cost effective option.
