I am framing an addition. I have a beam (double 2x10 LVL's) accross the top. Underneath, there will be a 6' sliding glass door and a window.
Between the bottom of the beam and what will be the top of the door (and window) there is about a 6" gap.
How do I frame the window and above the door? Do I need jack studs and additional headers? Or can i just frame in the rough opening size and put blocking between the top of the frame and the bottom of the LVL's?
Run a 2x6 across between the studs at the height needed. Add in little cripple studs (about 4.5" every 4' (in a 6' opening just put one centre.) Because it is under 16" (or 2') you do not need studs every 16".
