Dear List:
I’ve just seen floor joists comprised of two members
(each 1¾ “ x 3 ¾” ) stacked on their narrow edges in
an old house being renovated. The entire floor (joist
span 12’, o/c=16“)  is made up of these joists. They
don’t appear to be fastened and the mating line
between members is hard to detect.  Can this
arrangement be considered as a single 1¾ “ x 7½ “
member? Thanks,
Irv


No, two 1 3/4" x 3 3/34".
