i have a concern about installing my framing walls 2"x 6" ontop of the floor joist and 3/4" plywood plateform that now sits ontop of my 10" block foundation/p.t top plate. should the walls of this 2 story structure be placed on the outside edge of the floor joistplatform as to be flush with outside of 10" block foundation or should i center the walls so that the distupution wieght of the walls are evenly spread to the foundation, as apposed to the wieght being on the outside of the 10" foundation??? it seams to make more sense to have the wieght in the center of foundation but then would need to some how flash that water away from the setback , is there anydraw back to stting these walls flush with the outside also should i allow a set back for exterior wall covering such as exterior insul board and siding??? any input would be appreciated ! thank you !
The platform is set depending on the wall finish. If brick then the platform is set back to allow for brick ledge. The walls on top of the platform are normally set even with outside edge of the platform.
