We poured concrete and then got started on the framing. We used treated lumber for all posts and joists for the balconies:

There’s Mike! Those are 22′ long 6″x12″ beams with mortised in notches for the posts to prevent unsightly post twisting at the beam:

We pre-drilled pilot holes and drilled to counter sink all of the deck screws. We used red wood (sealed four sides before installation) and red wood color deck screws:

Our new concrete stairs and walkways blended into the existing retaining walls and slabs nicely:

Powder coated straps on one side of the post/beam connection drilled through accurately to line up with straps on the other side of that same post. Over 300 bolts used on this project. Notice the notched in posts to prevent unsightly post twist at the beam connection:

We made a jig and cut all the stair rail balusters on the tread/riser angle versus using the uncut balusters with the manufacturer’s adapter:
