Ok to hang I joist to Dimensional lumber Header?


Span is 30" crawlspace. Header is 4x12 dimensional lumber. I used appropriate I joist hangers for sized I joist. Thoughts? Figure I'll use the DIY Chatroom inspectors before the real one lol. The rim joist will also span opening

I'd add stiffeners between the web and the hanger.

If your in the building stage not just trying to do a repair I'd be using one like this.

These are for sawn dimensional lumber. I'm using I joist. I'll double check to see if there is something heavier duty available.

I'm guessing ok to use the beam to hang. I own a few different high rated framing books and this stuff is not noted. Thanks for feed back
