retrofit mudsill anchor bolts with


Hi,

I'm changing the mudsill and rim joist on my house.

Any idea on a proper way to anchor the (embeded) mudsill without interfering with the rim joist ?

There use to be a deck ledger over the sill (which is obviously the cause for the repairs )

Use something like this http://www.simpsonanchors.com/catalo...fit_bolts.html in the middle of mudsill and notch the joist sheating ?

That's an odd setup. Why would you expose a 2x4 to the elements? Does the sill plate sit in a recess like that? The foundation setup looks like the 2x4 sits where a brick ledge shoud be.
The setup I'm familiar with has a 2x6 PTsill plate sitting on a sill seal, with the rimjoist on the outer edge. The sheathing extends past the framing to cover the foundation interface. The floor joists sit on the 2x6 sill plate.
With your setup, the wood will rot again.

Odd setup yes and . embeded sill yes. That is the hand I was delt.

There use to be a 2x8 over the silll that served as a ledger for a deck. So the at first glance (to the builder) it did not look like the 2x4 was exposed. Water cam from behind the ledger...

In the end once I cover everything up the 1/2 inch sheating, 1 inch xps, the housewrap and the furring/siding will cover the framing and that new rim joist so the wrap will also cover the 2x4 mudsill. If water comes back to the sill it will because I made a mistake higher up. The mud sill will sit on a folded 5 inch sill seal so it will not be touching the foundation from any of the two surfaces.

It looks all the world to me like someone built the wall on the brick ledge, weird.

I like these from Simpson, don't know if you can use them for this scenario though.

The Simpson FAP would work on the outside face if your picture is correct.

I used some of those on my existing foundation.....a lot easier to use instead of trying to drill a hole for an anchor bolt.

They run about $18/ea....but real easy to install....you drill a couple of 1/2" holes in the side....you can use wedge anchors or epoxy all thread studs in....they come with the screws for the wood but you have to buy the 2 bolts/studs.
