Hi there im new here so hello everyone , my question is am i aloud to put a 2x6 plate on my header before i install it. so the 2x6 plate is acually sitting on the cripple. I dont know if that is to code or not?
Standard practice here when using double 2x's, or a 4x for a header-flush out, foam board inside later (when window is not dropped). Gives a nailing surface for drywall and window head trim (casing), unless thicker trim.
