Is it Okay to Use 4x2 Timbers in Decking Frame


Postby David21palmer » Thu Mar 31, 2016 8:09 pm

I am planning on building a decking 3m by 2.4m. Once I have the posts in the ground can I use 4x2 wood for the frame. Most seem to use 6x2. All advice welcome.

4x2 is not strong enough to support any weight on that length.
