Holey 2x10 due to more plumbing follies


Here's part 2 of the plumbing rough in debacle.

They initially installed my Woodford V22C horizontally instead of vertically. Then they cut it out and installed a horizontal model.

As a result, I now have a bunch of holes in a 2x10. This bathroom was originally a back porch, and the perimeter was double 2x10s running to concrete piers.

The 2x10s were partially chewed (years of termite abuse), so a carpenter installed new 2x10s around the perimeter before hanging joists. Thus the beams around the perimeter are now tripled.

Here's the damage:



Is this OK or does it need some kind of reinforcement?

First fire the plumber, then you've got some work to do. Is this a single plate?

Too late to fire the plumber.

The 2x10s you see with the holes are three-ply.

Geeze .....You need KCT or someone on your codes here and tighten up the loose wiring I think. What's with the wet pipes in this pic?

Although ugly, there's not really any problem with the holes the way they are. The code allows you to drill a hole with a diameter not to exceed 1/3 of the joist's actual depth. You're also required to leave 2" of wood intact top and bottom no matter how big the hole is.

Based on what I see I think you're just fine.

As for the wires, they're ugly, but that's a topic for another thread!
