Re: New home build framing question.

The rim joist being cut like that is just pure laziness. If you have a joist that bad, you call up your lumber guy and make him run you out a new one. Those shims under the beam are really half-ass.

Now with that said, everything you have posted is completely inline with your average production framing crew. If you pointed out that rim joist they truly wouldn't understand why you have a problem with it. They will say they do it all the time, and so does everyone else. The sad truth is, they would be right. If you are forced to keep using that framing crew I would be in there every day watching them, putting a level on things, and measuring what they are doing and comparing with the blueprints.
