Shed building on Concrete pillars


Hi

Building a 20x20 shed on nine separate 10" sono pillars.My question is this.The plans call for a particular Simpson connector that is only for a 4x4 post.Since i am using 6x6 post on top of the pillar how do i go about fasting the two 2x10 floor joists (running around the perimeter ) that will run at right angles to the outside corners to the 6x6 post?.

Thanks any help appreciated

Simpson makes a bracket for connecting 4x beams to a 6x6 post. Call your designer and ask if you can use the correct bracket, I imagine they will be fine with that. I don't have my catalog with me, or I would quote the part number, but you can download the Simpson catalog off the Internet and get the correct part number from it.

Well you can go to a metal fab shop and get a piece of 6’’ x 6’’ x 3/8’’ x 8’’ long angle have them punch ½’’ diameter holes equally spaced attach to your 2 x 10’s drill through and attach everything with ½’’ dia bolts with nuts and washers.

Why not just screw the 2x10 rim joists to the sides of the short upright 6x6 pillar attached to the concrete pillar as shown above?

Drill pilot holes for the screws.

If for "double 2x10" you mean two rim joists, sistered, you can attach one joist to the post and attach the second joist to the first joist including multiple screws near the ends.

Example of double rim joist on pillar but with no 6x6 column. Note interlocking of ends of joists at corner permitting screwing into the ends of the joists. In your case I would use screws rather than nails to avoid hammer stress on the 6x6 column attached to the concrete pillar.

Thanks for the suggestion.what im going to do is notch the 6x6 so as the 2 2x10 will rest on top in either direction then plate then to get through inspection.
