I found this beveled double LVL on a framing inspection that also holds up the end of another large LVL beam.
I reported the need for the engineers drawing since I knew it could be correct as is but had some doubts due to the loads on it.
The builder sent my client the drawing and specs, it indicated a 5 1/2 inch heel at the end of the beam and a 5/12 bevel slope. An email also came with it that stated " the calculations are correct on the beam".
I went back for the predrywall and framing reinspection and actually measured it since I knew it did not have a 5 1/2 inch heel.
In case the pictures ended up too small, the heel came out to be 4 inches and the bevel was wrong too so its back to the drawing board…
I hope I get to go back and see what the repair looks like.
