question of wall framing


That I do! I had the first part after my name for a few months, then wanted to try the second part. Before I could change it, a poster private messaged me saying he did check his ducting and it was almost totally plugged. He cleaned it right away. So I decided if it saved one fire that I would leave the original message and just added the second message after it. That's why I don't have a picture, moving icon or Company name after my name, I want to help others every way possible, not call attention to myself or my projects.

Jl answered the way we frame headers here for the maximum R-value. Consider with a 2x10 on it's side = R- 1.87 With polyiso there instead = R 10.8. Big difference of R-9, times the bigger houses with 25 windows average 7.5" x 5' = a 6.5 square foot hole that could have been insulated to R-18 instead of R-9. That's why it pays to research everything, as you are finding out.

Dave, it's not too late to pull your first inside header and replace polyiso there, unless you drywalled already....

Be safe, Gary

question of wall framing


what is the best way to do an opening like a large door or large window with the jack and king studs? the opening in this is about 4-5 foot wide, and i dont know if i need 2 jack studs under each side of the header or if 1 on each side will be good enough

It should be called out on your permitted plans for the addition. The ground snow load and roof span are pretty basic. So is the number of jack studs and floor/roofs involved on that link. What exactly are you having trouble understanding?

this is for a new structure instead of an addition, actually 2 structures, one is a house for a friend of the family and she wants something like a sliding glass door, the other is a gardening shed for my mother. when i look at charts(or whatever that thing is called, not sure of the term) i tend to get confused easily, its a learning disability thing

That is great you want to help others, that's why we answer on here. I suggest you contact your local Building Department for guidance. New construction or additions would be run by them first for the minimum safety Codes, I wouldn't want that responsibility nor would you. They would be based on the Tables given, or possibly less strict, depending on which year Code your area is under. You would probably need a permit for the new door as it is a structural alteration. The shed may be small enough not to warrant one, ask locally. Build safely.
