I am putting a new window in where there wasn't one.
The top of the window jamb is at 79", but the height of the studs from the floor is 99". All of my framing illustrations show the header across the top, but I don't suppose I have to find a 20" 2x right? So how do I frame it? It is a load bearing wall. Window is 4' wide x 3' high.
Three ways to do it. Clutch said one way- cripples above header. 2. cripples below header, and a 2x header for the window top. 3. Header in the floor above, useful for basement applications.Need to hang the floor joists, a lot more work.
