WOOD: Long Boards

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Ignorance on parade, here. How does this guy get any clients?

I have quite a few "longer than the 18' stock length" 2x joists in a current design. (The 18' stock length is what Woodworks insists is the rule).

My question is: Just how much of a problem is this? How much additional cost might be incurred? Is it better to look at I-joists for spans greater than 18 feet? Or didn't someone mention a Simpson splice connector in here earlier (sorry, I wasn't listening closely enough).

Thanks.
