Joist Layout


Sounds good.

Here is a copy of the Survey/Topo to scale. As you can see I'm still encroaching a fair amount into the Easement

50 years they've never dug up the line. Guaranteed if I put this up they'll be out the next day. I'm just that kind of lucky guy.

Sorry,

not sure what happened when I re-sized the image. 1" = 10,000,000 feet

See if I can fix that.

Hopefully this one comes through. No longer to scale though (having trouble getting GIMP to lock image aspect ratio)

but it at least gives an idea.

Is there something obvious I'm missing here? From what little I know of Framing (I feel like I know less now than I did 48 hours ago ) I don't see a glaring error in my design.


Oooh boy, here it comes.....

I know you aren't on the stairs yet, but may I make a suggestion?

You mentioned "cutting them". A cut stringer is about 1/3 as strong as a solid stringer... and both are code legal. Something to consider before you shoot yourself in the foot just because most people go the lazy route, and hack up their stringers. Really not the best way to go.
