wood framing question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Does any body have any misgivings about triple top plates (2x6) as opposed
to dbl top plates for a bearing wall ? I am thinking of the perpindicular
to plane force transfer. The framer screwed up on the length of the studs
and he wants to make up the diff. by adding another plate.
