Southern California Framing


I would like to share a few photos of a coastal build we currently have underway. Words cannot express how proud I am of our team’s artisan-ship.They are framing to a standard that one would expect for finish.

Entire frame framed with LVL throughout , every cut sealed with Marine Grade Varnish , all sheathing screwed with galvanized fasteners

Big thanks to LP Building products for supplying us with the Beautiful LVL

I will keep posting progress pictures of this build as we go..

Letting in a strap. I assume.

What is "letting in a strap"? Making a space for it so its flush with the wood?

Yes. Not sure your age but the same concept as a let in brace we used to use for walls. The strap is to tie everything together. It's let in so it's flush. A let in brace gives a wall its strength due to its angle. They use metal let in straps now. It used to be 1x. Although that strap on the deck isn't a brace. But it's let in.

Re: Southern California Framing


Thank you guys

Yes project is right on the water , in Northern San Diego

We countersink all hardware Ltp4's , straps, etc flush into the substrate.

All framing is framed with LVL by LP building products

Here's a video they did for us last year

What CAdecks said, but with his 1x my guess is those were diagonals at the wall corners to prevent racking. The one above I'd guess is some type of seismic protections in their code.

Yep. I've had to put a horizontal strap all the way around a whole building with one continuous strap. Usually when there a lot of large openings.

Re: Southern California Framing


Horizontal strapping? What would that do? That's crazy. Wouldn't staggered blocking be just as good AND piss off the insulation guys?

I know. You'd think it would need to be diagonal to give any strength. But it was a strap called out by engineers. It usually is used on maybe one wall. But I've had to do it all the way around the building. Top and bottom of the wall. One at header height the other at sill height.

Must be trying to squeeze out every last percentage of stability, "fkit, just have the framers run straps top and bottom".

I used to think the amish knew what they were doing until I saw them almost take all the siding off a garage and there were no letins or ply, the wind came up and it came alive--so did the amish, scrambling for bracing. The beard brigade scrambles.

Re: Southern California Framing


Here are a few more photos and preventive measures we take on coastal homes.

In photos 1 & 2 you can see the benefits of the LP LVL material treated with Site-Cote by LP

In photo 3 you can see how we take the time to seal each piece of beam fill by first filling each countersink cavity with “rapid seal” by Sto. Corp. We then seal the gap between the steel and wood filler, and finally cover the entire beam with two coats of “EmeraldCoat” by Sto. Corp.

In photo 4 you can see that we wrap the nailers with a jiffy seal membrane to keep them from rotting against the Steel I beam

Perforated shear wall technique to pick up more shear value on that line.
