a) I always call it out as 6”.  There is a blurb in the code (2304.11.2.2) that mentions this in regards to pressure treatment of sheathing and sill plates.

b) 2” – 4” from what I’ve seen is common.  I’ve never seen 0” on new construction, only after it’s been lived in and landscaped.

Typically on plans it isn’t shown, but when I have seen it, it’s about 2” to 3”.


In the field, it’s usually flush or zero.
