user-6805150's picture

Hello All,  I am looking for answer which I can not seem to find elsewhere.

How is the second floor bottom  Plate secured to the OSB RImboard and engineered I-Joist which has a 2 x 3 flange

Nail vs. Screw.  Size and length. Quantity?

    

Thanks,

Jim

Shows down around pgs 6-9 or so on my screen.  Note the mention of squash blocks.

sheathing (post #216125, reply #4 of 4)

Take your drawing a few steps further and put the sheathing on it.  The sheathing is supposed to overlap the plates to tie it all together.
