Short Entry Door
Thanks everyone. Here is a good drawing of what we have going on and my proposed solution.
Here's the problem, the architect is trying to avoid going through the rim joist, because it is on a load bearing wall.
There should be no issue going through the rim joist(2x12) of a load bearing wall, right? How about going through the deck ledger?
The architect has expressed some concern with going through the rim joist, so if it is a legit method, anyone have any documentation on that?
The red line in the first image shows where I'd like the place the vent, but it has to go through the rim joist of a load bearing wall AND the deck ledger board.
