    Looks like somebody was making space for a garage door track. HA HA!!! I wonder how much that blunder will cost to fix. How many of the I-joists did he notch?

    One of those is a triple width too. Whoops!!!!

    Don't worry. If those joists sag, that new wall will carry the weight. Not.

    Charlie - I think he's referring to the fact that when you role your cursor over your thumbnail images, it appears that the name of the client or street or some other identifier might be in the file name.

    The last thing you want is some nameless coward from this site to call the listing agent of the property and talk $hit about you because you forgot to rename your pics. Oh wait a minute.....that happened to me.

    Scary, actually, and potentially dangerous as well. Reminds me of an owner-built home I lived near many years ago in Wisconsin. The City building inspector had so many red tags stapled everywhere, he must have been buying them by the case. The owner/builder didn't know a thing about framing or concrete work, and yet he (eventually) managed to build the entire place himself. He was still working on it when I moved out of the subdivision 2 years later.

    Is there even any cement on this joint?

    And why cut all the notches, then hang the pipe well below them?

    Hi Steve,

    Don't know about the cement.

    If your going to finish the basement the notches would be someplace to jam the pipe into behind the Sheetrock.

    Oh I understand the intent of the "remodeler" and the alleged reason for the notches, but despite the lack of hangars, it looks like the pipe is in its finished placement. With the vertical drop from above, and the turn down the wall, it's not like he can just cram the pipe into place.

    My question was more of a dig at the skills displayed, rather than an actual question.

    (and a post to keep the "you haven't posted in a while" bot off my back)

    Serious stuff. Bad enough to do that to dimensional lumber, but I'm guessing that leaves those engineered I beams w/ somewhere close to no/none/0 structural strength.
