Did an inspection for a fine young police officer in Toledo yesterday
Neat 1929 tudor but it has been modified by the owners over the years.
Take a look at the glass block installation.
besides hacking the joists pretty badly , they are actually resting on the
top tier and mortar.
The joists have 1/4" and 5/16" gaps from the rim respectively .
I’m recommending laminating the rim in between the two joists and on
the outer sides with a 2x6 to build it out then using joist hangars to relieve the load on the glass below.
Ok what would you do ?
Wishing all of you the best this holiday season . :o
