Beam Pockets

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if this has been reported as of yet.

 

Beam "pocket" cuts through the entire foundation wall.

Hey fellow users

 

I looked at this again and if the beam pocket is no more than half way to the exterior of the wall. It doesn't cut the foundation wall.

I suppose this makes sense, most pockets are only 4 inches deep.

You should have 1/2" space around it to meet the code and it should be wrapped so its not in direct contact with masonry if it makes any difference to show that or note that on your drawings.
