Wall sheathing issue

Recommended Posts

I would like to have the exterior sheathing of an exterior wall extend to the top of the top plate where it belongs.

If you put the sheathing as part of the main layer it creates problems with the platform framing.

The soffit should only cut through the siding layer. Code would require that the sheathing be nailed to the top plate.

This is a longtime Issue in Chief if boxed (flat) eaves are specified, Chief only extends the Sheathing to the top plate when there is a sloped eave.

 

Generally you just fix in in the Cross Section with a few cad lines or with a CAD Box .....same for the Soffit backer ( 2x4) on the wall or needed blocking.
