Sill plate hold down bolts


The sill plate hold down bolts extend about 1" above the sill plate and will interfere with the floor joist installation. What is the best method to recess the nut and washer into the sill plate - or is there a better solution - maybe double up the sill plate? Thanks.

notch the bottom of the joist. do not recess the anchor bolts washer and nut into the plate. building codes typically require a nominal 2x (1-1/2") plate. if you recess the washer & nut you no longer have a 1-1/2" plate at that point.

you are allowed to notch the ends of a floor joist 1/4 the depth of the joist (see link for diagram) http://publicecodes.cyberregs.com/ic...9_5_par030.htm

hope this helps

thats useless. that method is only good for partition walls on a slab inside.

for a mud sil you have to have 1/2" anchor bolts or 1/2" x 7" wedge anchors into the foundation wall. this is the only connection to the foundation for the rest of the house keeping it attached.

anchor bolts are placed when the concrete begins to setup after being poured. wedge anchors (red heads) are drilled out for with a sds hammer and driven into fully cured concrete then tightened with a ratchet or impact gun.. 1/2" threaded rod can also be used in conjuction with 2 part epoxy made for such an application.. hilti makes this product

sorry bout that gb.. the useless comment is about the original posters video using 3" stikers. when i responded to the thread the o.p. was the only post up

notching is perfectly fine or even shifting the joist. more often than not a large notch wont affect the bearing of the joist it may slightly weaken the connection at the rim joist though. but nothing to be worried about

U can waste ur time doin stupid bull**** and weakening the structure, or u can just put the joist right beside it on either side

just notch joists around the bolts, there should still be plenty of bearing for the joist as it sits on the sill plate
