    larry, if you don`t own a hammerdrill borrow steves! i like the redhead drop-in type anchors `cause you can remove the bolts if you screw up....plus they`re strong as can be.

    Larry you can use a rotohammer to drill the hole say 7/8" diameter and then use a 3/4" threaded rod and use epoxy. Home Depot sells the epoxy in tubes and it reacts when it mixes together through a spiral nozzle. Makes a very strong bolt.

    larry, the new lumber treatment looses is caustic effects as the lumber drys out.....if you use redheads and hot dipped bolts you should be good...or a lead drive in will work too......
