I want to build a 16'long x12' wide free standing deck behind my dining room. How far from the foundation walls should my concrete pillars be? The deck will only be 2 feet above ground. It will be partially surrounded on the back (dining room wall, 12' wide) and one side (kitchen wall). If it is attached to any part of the house it will be the via steps off of the back porch which is off the back kitchen wall.

Keep your piers (or concrete pillars) 18" to 24" from the house. No more than that.
