RE: Wood Construction Holdowns at Corners

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Jim-

Another option would be is to use a 6x6 corner post with a 2x6 to two
faces which would facilitate the installation of gypsum wallboard.

Regards,

Bill

:In 2x6 walls, you would have to use (4) 2x6's at the corner (4 
:in one direction and one in the other). The outside sheathing 
:would then lap only 1/2" on the stud in one direction. I worry 
:about the contractor splitting the wood at that location. Is 
:this a concern to others?
:
:Also, The inside stud would have to be countersunk if you use 
:the HD or HDA holdowns with thru bolts. If you countersink 
:those bolts, I would guess that you loose the value of the 
:countersunk stud? I guess that is why the PHD's are a good solution.

:Why can't you use one hold down at the corner post?
:
:Sure, you have to consider 1.0*Transverse loads + 
:0.3*Longitudinal loads and vice versa, but, IMO, it sure beats 
:installing two hold downs.
:
:The corner "post" could be the typical triple stud with the 
:hold down mounted to the face of the stud. If the sheathing is 
:attached to the triple studs in both directions, the hold down 
:should also work as long as there is a load path from the 
:sheathing to the hold down. If the hold down is a PHD with 
:screws attached to only two studs, then the third stud has to 
:be nailed to the other two to provide a load transfer. This 
:should be easily accomplished by 16Ds at the same spacing as 
:the shear wall edge nailing, but you need to check this out 
:for yourself.
:
:After all, the hold down doesn't know which way the shear 
:force is acting, the post is just trying to lift off the foundation.
