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....
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.
