Dunno, but some people don't like joist hangers Either they don't trust them or they think they'll squeak.

They can make a ledge with a poured foundation as buckeye said.

Obviously

But what they can't do, is anything without an engineering detail

Obviously, but that's not what I'm talking about.

Re: TJI Floor Joist Question


One reason for doing this is to be able to get finished grade elevation up closer to inside-finished-floor elevation, and minimize the step-up-into-the-house scheme.

The floor-within-foundation thing is something I use in design when we'll have an entry portico, or some type of large roof overhang at the front entrance or service entrance, and we want stone or concrete paving outside the door, and little to no step-change between inside and outside. I don't do it completely around, but only raise the foundation walls where needed.

Don't get snippy Joe, you first suggested a block detail used in the benign area of NJ. I just pointed out that your idea was area specific, and not applicable to the west coast. It wouldn't take a rocket scientist to see that a similar detail could be poured in concrete, but that is not what you suggested.

OK Wingnut,

I suggested block, you said no block is used in that area. I didn't know that. I suggested to pour a ledge. No big deal. You said obviously it has to be engineered. No reason for you to point out the obvious to me. Now your still pointing out that I suggested block. Drop the block idea already.
