Don't see any bolts here. Just concrete slab under, couple nails.

This wall is perpendicular to an exterior wall which I know is load bearing. Thanks for that link and info very useful. I've got about 80% notched out for 3 studs in a row, none are doubled.

I have both cabinets at the base and one at height. The one at height is installed at a corner, so it's connected to this wall and another wall for the pantry. Hopefully this sounds like it could reduce any bend issues.


Sounds like at minimum I need stud shoes and some extra reinforcement. Not sure how I can reinforce correctly- there's only space between the studs. Sounds like I also need to call the plumbing company to have a conversation.

.

And do the joist land above the wall.

I don't think you will find a shoe for a cut out that big, that will add to the anti bend strength.

Re: Notched studs


A) Can you post up a photo of the cabinets on the other side?

B) Is the work that was done something that needs a permit pulled for the work?

Regardless as to if it will work as-is, it needs to be done to code. Using the cabinets on the other side for supporting shoddy work is a band aid.

What size is the pipe o.d.? Looks to me, to to meet code, even a 2x8 wall wouldn't work.

Doesn't appear that the joists land on the wall.

Here's a photo of the other side of the wall

No permit was necessary to my knowledge

The pipe is 2.5" wide. Looks like a standard PVC drain pipe to me

Re: Notched studs


Which direction do the joists go?

Thanks, that helps a bunch. I wouldn't be worried at all about the weight on the wall from the cabinets since there is a panel that goes all the way to the floor.

Is that a vaulted ceiling? Does it land on this wall?

So it's likely 2" pipe, which is 2-3/8" O.D. (2.375).

Even with a 2x6 wall, anything over 2.2" o.d. isn't really code legal.

Re: Notched studs


I really don't think it matters if it is bearing or not, that wall needs help, more structure.
