Install a Sliding Glass Door with Limited Header space


if he did that (cut out both plates) wouldn't he need to install some metal strap ties to resist the shear load? If he has a double top plate he could easily cut out the bottom 2x4 member and the top would keep everything tied in nicely.

Good Suggestion framer!
