Sill Plate Location

Recommended Posts

Monday morning brain freeze!

 

Having trouble changing the location of the sill plate on a 12' foundation wall when using a 4" brick main floor wall. I can't find the default setting to move the sill plate.

 

Thanks for all the help.

Change it to a 2x4 and it will move itself into the proper location. HATE the way the sill plate reacts to brick ledges!!!

Thanks Joey, I don't do a lot of brick houses and could not find anywhere to move the sill plate. Thought it was something I was overlooking.

Nope. I think the sill plate get's centered to the bottom plate/wall above, but when a brick veneer is added, and the foundation is then offset to account for the brick ledge, no matter how thick you make the foundation wall, the 2x6 will be out of place. The only quick and easy way that I know of to fix it, is to make the plate a 2x4.
