Re: Plywood shear wall definition

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mark,
I assume from your comments that the 4" stud is above the plate (double plate) of the 6" stud. Is this correct or is this a double wall (10" plus sheathing)?

Joe,
Actually along the length of the wall. One vertical 4" stud connected to one vertical 6" stud. Thanks, Mark

Does the change in stud size occur at the floor or in the middle
    of the wall height ??
