    Question Sink 6x6 post or anchor to footer?

    I'm constructing a 32x12 deck and would like to know if there are any great difference between sinking the post or resting it on a post anchor. Time is limited (day job, travel to and from friend's house,friend's new baby on the way etc.)in its construction.

    I prefer pier construction which keeps the wood well above the ground and prevents rot. The only time you need to sink a post is if you need the structural rigidity of that system. Just make sure your piers are set below the frost line.
