Subfloor / Sole plate


Joe, I was wondering what you recommended for attaching that ledger. I'm figuring the blocks are hollow and I've seen a ton of different concrete anchors. I've heard of expansion anchors with adhesive and all kinds, so just curious.

One last question gentlemen; with an only 1 1/2" wide ledger, what would I use to attach the joist hanger to the ledger given there is concrete behind it?

Thanks!

1-1/2" common nails. Box stores here usually place HDG Simpson nails right next to the hangers. Keep in mind you need to either use PT lumber or put a vapor retarder between the concrete and lumber.
