Another Foot & Another Column

When I was on the Oakley Home 2.0 site Friday looking at the staking layout, I took some time to take a closer look at the size and layout of the rear deck and determined that adding an additional foot of depth to get to 12'-0" up from 11'-0" would make for a better functioning furniture layout with more comfortable clearances around the various table and chair arrangements future owners might decide on. I even went home to my own patio and took measurements to visualize what that size of deck would accommodate.
As a result of this new deck depth, the length and depth of the joists and beams will require an intermediate column to be added to the framing layout, which is shown in the revised drawing below.
