deck framing question
Hey all! I am spending my Biden Bucks on redoing a ground level deck on my new home. This will be a 20×12 deck that will have an attached ledger board to the concrete foundation of the house. I just bought the pressure treated lumber for the framing this weekend but was unable to find 20' boards for the rim joist parallel to the house/ledger board. Instead I bought two 10' boards that I am planning on connecting somehow to create the desired 20' span.
My question is: If this sounds like a doable task that will be stable, what is my best route in connecting these two 10' boards end to end?
Thanks in advance!
