Bridge Input Sought
I'll be constructing an elevated deck that will sit on top of a cargo container.
While I know the easiest way to have access to this deck is with a stairway, while barbecuing today, I noticed that I have some land the same height as the cargo container, but about 25 feet away. So, the idea of a bridge came-to-mind... Yes,I had a couple of beers, but I still think the idea is a neat one; a long as it's doable without breaking the bank...
I include a very short video that I hope reveals what I'm trying to accomplish here. If I were to go with a bridge, I'm envisioning it connecting at the right end of the container, as seen in the video. I believe I have an old wooden ladder in that spot now...
I've built decorative bridges before, but never a functional one. Any ideas with respect to design and materials? Would a truss bridge be overkill? If you have any photos to share as examples, that would be much appreciated.
