    Not sure if I should waste my time putting them in as think the composite decking will tie it together .

    recommendations ?

    Composite deck running left to right and centres of joists are 350mm

    Floorboards tie joists together but TRADA tables still advise noggins if span is greater than 2.5m but its only decking so not the end of the world if joists twist slightly

    If you have the timber put the noggins in as it’s not much effort.

    Good to see it finally evolve from your initial ideas.Personally I wouldn't bother with noggins but it gives you some comfort by all means bang them in. Remember, no more than 56 people on it at a time.

    I ended up putting extra noggins in mine and I think it helped the final rigidity, so if you can, it cant hurt the final result. mine feels super solid. Better overbuilt than underbuilt!

    Good to see it coming to fruition too - itll be nice to see the final result!

    strength wise it could take nearly more than thrice the standard loading for domestic floors and deflection wise its a 1/3 of what's allowable so its well overbuilt

    Looking good. Wish my current job was rectangular. It's a crazy shape with angles going off all over the place, and on a slope, and with a pile of board scribing to do around a rockery. :( Building the frame has been like cutting a pitched roof. Customer's thrilled so far though.

    This one’s built like a battleship anchor because it’s got a one-and-a-quarter-ton hot tub going onto it. The central spine directly under the tub location is twinned and supported by four 4 x 4 posts dug way down with three bags of Postcrete in each hole. It's not going anywhere.
