What to do here..


So... as i am removing the FG blanket and installing rigid foam board, I came across a hole in the wood (see pic). I guess this is a cut out for the bolt that screws in the wood to the concrete.

My question, can i simple spray foam insulation in the gap and then cover the area with a piece of foam glued to the wood. and then spray foam around the edges of the rigid foam.

That will work, use low-expanding foam (window/door). IMO, use foil-faced foamboard; How to insulate rim joists simply

PS. Caulk/canned foam the pt mudsill/concrete wall joint against air also.

What a dingbat application (i.e. notching the lumber that much).

Some closed cell SPF would be perfect here.

You're welcome... FYI, the notch is SOP for a framer when piece-work the house build, not hourly. The fastest, easiest, most efficient way; two saw cuts without changing the blade depth as set, hammer knocks out piece with the bolt/nut indentation on it used to mark it- no measuring. Been there done that for years, no - decades, lol, before I knew better. Hope the WRB goes over the nut and down/over the mud-sill, appears so... with rigid foam board (?) sitting next to the rim on the plate (hence the rim appears flush; with-in 1/2") on inside edge. Glad we could help!
