I've seen Larry Haun do that in the video. As long as at can carry the load properly.CJ21 said:what about and 4x6?
I am wondering could you use a 4x4 as header for a window or door for 2x4 outside garage wall?
4x4 as a header...absolutely under the right conditions.what about and 4x6?
This is correct, however it just looks hackish to me to see a 4x4 up there. Lolgriz said:4x4 as a header...absolutely under the right conditions. 4x6 will work also, under the right conditions.... Come on CJ, you've been around long enough to know better than ask a loaded question like this....
Why?Yes I know but what, I am trying to avoid using 2 2x6's with 1/2'' OSB between them.
There are other ways to save money and improve efficiency. It takes very little time to build headers. Its basic framing. I don't mean this to sound harsh..just reality IMHO.That's more work and more lumber I got to buy.
I've been on more than one job where a 4x4 was called out as a header.This is correct, however it just looks hackish to me to see a 4x4 up there. Lol
In a pinch, I might even do it on my own project, but I doubt I would on a job for someone else.
?????..... 3 ply or 4 ply of whatthose larry haun videos are roughly 20 years old.. and those codes are too.. dont risk it go with a bigger header.. if i use 2x6 based on headroom i do 3 ply sometimes 4 ply
