Plumbing penetrations in the toe plate (sole plate)
I notice that the IRC Chapter 6, R602 has rules for drilling and notching of studs, and rules for drilling and notching of the top plate. However, other than the protections specified in the Plumbing Code (305.6), I can’t find anything else regarding limitations on penetrations in the toe/sole plate.
Anyone with code/building science knowledge care to explain why that is?
