>>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.<< Well, tough noogies. Make him fix it. Seriously, though, I think it would depend on how you plan to connect them together. With a double plate, you can connect the two pieces using standard length nails, but with a triple plate you would run into embendment length problems with a standard nail. Possibly lag screw would work. Or through bolts. Kate O'Brien, P.E.
