Sip - 1St Floor Framing

Recommended Posts

I'm using SIP walls and I can't get the 1st Floor Platform to frame to the exterior face of the SIPs.  Chief insists on making the SIP's go down to the sill plate and puts the Floor framing inside.

 

Is this normal?  Do I need to make a stud wall with 48" stud spacing to get this to work?

What the heck is going on around here!?  A couple minutes ago I beat Glenn to an answer and now Joe is asking a question...about something he doesn't know how to accomplish :huh:

 

This is freakin' me out a little...

Not only that, but your post count is getting close to Glenn's as well...  :rolleyes:

 

Did Glenn hi-jack your account?!   :ph34r:

Sorry Glenn, It's an X8 Plan so I can't post it in this Forum.  Only X8 Beta users would be able to open it.  :P

 

IAE, I checked the Wall dbx - Structure Panel.....

 

"Stop at Floor Below" wasn't checked.  I'm not sure how that happened but that was the problem.

Joe, not sure what you are describing but the lower sill/SIP detail is a poorly sealed T&G shown in the attached. You can read my blog to learn more about the issues with the rest of the joints if you'd like.

EDIT" Never mind see you found the issue, well on the PC anyway :)

Hey Joe, I'm posting this just to try to catch you in post count, but how do you handle shear walls with the Sip's.

In this particular case I'm doing a Luxury Tiny House on an 8'x20' trailer.  Take a look at post #6 in this thread.  It's a pretty typical detail but I'm lag bolting the plate to the floor joists which are bolted to the trailer.
