Should work now

I don't see any plywood anywhere, I do see OSB however.

Install the OSB next. Then arrive at the proper measurements for boxing the chimney and build four wall-units. If you want the chimney box to be square you will build two wall-units of the same size and the other two wall-units of a different dimension but both of them the same size also. Then assemble the box one wall-unit at a time.:)

How is this being supported?

No plans or permits I take it.

Willie T 12-01-2011 02:38 PM

Your "spliced" support next to the chimney where the two joists butt together looks like it may work loose and begin to sag over time.

Other than that, a non-bearing wall WILL work there if you simply run the "plywood" to the chimney sides of all the surrounding 2x's, then build the walls right on top of the "plywood". Although, you really SHOULD always have well supported, doubled 2x's under any wall.

Sorry, Ron. I see we posted at the same time.

Finish the floor and sheet it before starting any walls.

How thick is the osb? You should be using ” tongue and groove. Be sure to glue the sheathing to the joist.

It looks like you only have the ledgers lagged every 4’ or so, and you said the plate you lagged to was questionable. Do you mean rotted?

Didn’t you have to submit plans to get the permit?

garrettstump 12-01-2011 11:02 PM

the reason i lagged a 2-12 was because the sill place consisted of 3 different 2-8 stacked on top of each other and were not even so i could not put any hangers on them with them being straight. i am using 3/4 osb and yes i am gluing down the osb to the joist.
