Advanced framing details
My local Habitat for Humanity is using a pseudo advanced framing, and I would like to persuade them to go further, but I have a question or two.
If we were to remove the cap plate in the walls, what is used to connect wall T intersections, and straight wall top plate to plate.
A gusset, like used in trusses or a couple standard 16 inch straps? Or is there a 5 1/2″ by 16″ plate?
I see Simpson makes header straps so we can eliminate Jack studs. How do folks feel about no Jack studs on a door RO?
PS There may be more questions as I start to draw out a full advanced frame wall versus what we are doing.
