Re: Design of Wood Top Plates

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you can't get the studs to line up under the trusses (first choice), you
may try using a structural rim joist on top of the top plates depending on the
configuration of your truss (bottom chord bearing, etc.), and the detail at
the wall condition.

Good luck,
