Gap Between Trimmer & Holdown Post?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have seen some engineers provide a 1" to 1.5" of gap between the trimmer & the holdown post, is this doable at the job site when the plywood has to cover the entire wall and the framer is going to provide some nailing to them any way?

What is the reason behind this gap?
