Hello forum, this is my first post.
I am converting one of the garages (the one closer to the house) into a room. Everything it's all there. I just need to raise the floor which, is not an issue and need to frame in the 9' wide garage door and here I have the question. In order not to make it look like it used to be a garage, I want to place 2 layers of 16"x4" caps? That's where the whole frame of the garage is built on. One thing is, that there is a concrete slope, right outside of the garage door to prevent water to go in. Well, that's where I need to place these caps. Will the mortar mix to lay these blocks stick to the concrete?
Do I need to drive any threaded rods through the existing concrete, to tie down the 9' wide frame on to the blocks? Or is it enough to nail the frame to the side and the top?
Your time is greatly appreciated.
