Framing main structural beam into exterior wall
Hi All! My wife and I are building a new home in central Massachusetts and I need some advice on how to frame the main support beam for my house into a wall. It is a walkout basement and on one side the beam pocket is cast into the foundation. On the opposite side the foundation drops where the beam will need to be supported by a framed wall of the house. I have researched online and found multiple methods but I am not sold on any particular way that it should be done. I’ve attached an image of the foundation for reference. Looking for examples/suggestions on how to mate the beam with the framed wall.
