Cottage floor questions
 
We are building in prefab cottage on a slab/3 foot wood pony wall crawl space foundation with an LVL (3 ply)5-1/4x9-1/2 1.8E 33' center beam with teleposts. The prefab comes with 24 x 2 x 11-7/8 TJI engineered wood floor joists. It also comes with 4 - 12' x 11.875" - 2x6 end gable pony walls. So there will be concrete slab, 36" PT 2x6 pony wall, and 2x6 end gable pony wall. My question:
How do I frame the 36" pony walls around the LVL center beam, and how should the LVL center beam be supported at the ends?
This is not defined in the engineer's drawings.
Thanks
Andy

Call up the engineer and ask him.
