Sister Studs in Ceiling (Easy Question)


4' span/ Chicago beam / blocking 3 ways to Sunday/

or if 2x4 ceiling joist spanning 4' 16" oc have a wobble? / Means they were not toe nailed properly. / Screw Hurricane clips to to joists & top plate each side. Or add a few nails, Joist to top plate, if you have enough room.

Mr. Cole, do you have a FL Stamp? I need quick turn around on Engr drawings
for truss repairs all the time. I love your drawings and have great respect for your posts.

Thanks
Bob
