Re: New home build framing question.

That notch they made to clear the anchor bolt is also not acceptable!

Not to mention, there appears to be only one anchor bolt in the 12-foot run in the picture. It's looking like the OP has a long, hard road to travel with this crew.

How should the anchor bolt notch been done? I didn't think there was anything wrong with it.

Also the anchor bolts are spaced pretty evenly I would have to measure but they are like every 3 foot.

Will have to buy a long level all my tools are in a pod storage. And will watch the walls to make sure they are placed over joists and not in between them.

I will also have to see if I can get them to email me a copy of the blueprints.

Thanks again guys!

Isn't this the sort of oversight that the General Contractor should be doing? (Or are you acting as the General Contractor?)

Who ever poured the foundation screwed up with the placement of the anchor bolt that needed the notch in the band board.

The anchor bolts should be put inside of the joist caps. They hold the sill plate down. It's obvious that the concrete crew put them in the wrong place. I don't see any other ones that required notching in your pictures, are there? This could become a major problem in the long run. Not only is mentioned by others could lead to the deterioration of the member but it's also a hole in the envelope of the structure that could affect air infiltration if not properly sealed.

It's nothing a saws-all, 1/2 masonry bit, threaded rod and some epoxy wouldn't fix. Properly.
