Sill Pl's and the 97 Code

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
How are people dealing with the 1997 code provisions for 3x min sill plates (V > 350 plf) at elevated floor conditions?
Alternates?  Assume a typical 4" E.N. w/ 510 plf capacity, nothing dramatic.
heavy rim joist w/ lag screws from sill to rim?
20d nailing? (I don't think 20d is readily available in nail guns, am I right?)
Looking for input.
