Hanging floor joists: Hanging or on top of foundation wall?
My engineering is showing that hangers are used to mount the floor joists from the foundation wall. The hangers drop the floor joists below the top of the concrete foundation. I wasn’t expecting this. Instead I was expecting to see the floor joists sitting on top of the foundation wall.
What are the pros/cons of doing it one way or the other when it comes to installing exterior foam on the above grade walls, installing interior foam on the basement below grade walls and then air sealing and insulating the sole plate?
