Re: Residential Garage (Help!)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You must be fairly young, or at least have a young business if you are that
concerned about what size of joist the architect has in mind.  I think
Glenn's comment is great.  If you are concerned about that, why don't you
ask the person who is going to pay for the framing what he has in mind?  I
suspect they feel 2x4's at 24 is way more than adequate.

Bottom line is the material is inexpensive, you have to sleep comfortably at
night, and nobody is going to be there to share the lawsuit with you when a
future owner starts noticing sag, or a joist snap or anything else.

When in doubt be stout!  Just tell the architect the code says what is says.
Not your fault.  You agree with him.  You do think the code may be overly
conservative on this issue.
