You will have to do that over a column or a beam.

That works out well to use 8 and/or 16 footers. I'll plan everything based on the material I can get.

Thanks!

The trim boards are PVC, the decking is "Duralife" brand composite, it uses a new and very cool/easy "Step clip" hidden fastener system a friend recommended to me:
