Joist Hanger Alternatives
Just wondering if ther is an alternative to using joist hangers. To my mind, they look untidy.
Looking at extending out our front balcony. Current balcony is a suspended concrete slab. Going to have a ledger attached to the edge of the suspended slab, and need to attach the joists to the ledger for the deck extension.
I need it to look neat and tidy as it is above the entrance to our house (which is quite low). Is end nailing a possibility? Can't have the joists sitting on top of the ledger due to height restrictions.
