Framing Clip? Uneven Wall?


I need to install framing clips (LPT4's) on a shear wall.....this wall 'used' to be the back wall of the existing house....so off came the stucco....peeled back the roof....tossed a 3.5"x11.25 PSL beam on top of the top plate.....and then nailed up 1/2" struct 1 OSB.

Seeing how this is a "C" shearwall...I need LPT-4's every 12".....

As you can see in the pic....if I nail the LPT to the OSB....it sticks out 1/2" from the beam......

I've already bugged my architect way tooooo many times....but I seem to recall him saying to just nail it on top of the OSB...

So...confirm...I just nail to the OSB....smack the LPT with a hammer and nail the top portion to the beam?

Add a layer of OSB to the beam to flush it out then install the clips.

Framing Clip? Uneven Wall?


kwikfishron is right,
When I first saw photo, I would span the osb over the joint to tie them in.
Would have started from top of beam and span over the beam, then piece in the bottom.

But I still think something is wrong with this picture, cant quite put my finger on it.
If you put the clips on first, then spanned the joint with osb, that would make sense to me.

Putting the clips over the osb makes no sense

I would need to see the plans, would it be osb on one side and clips on the other side?
Been more then once had city approved plans from the architect, end up having to make revisions on them and approved from city, simply looking at them make no sense.

You at least need osb on the beam so clips will be flat.

You can add 1/2 OSB over the Parallam beam and then nail the LPT4, but you must use nails that are longer than Simpson specifies for the clip, I believe 8d common nails will result in no load reduction. Do not bend the LPT4. You can call Simpson with questions, I have found they have very good support.

In retrospect....I wish I had put the OSB on after the beam was put in place.....but I had the back wall exposed and needed to get it covered.....seeing how it was 2-3 months before the beam got put into place....

I just happen to have a 10' length of OSB that is only about 5" wide.....I think it will work perfectly.

Thanks guys.
