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.
