Here is a picture of a structural knee wall built against the foundation supporting the floor joists. The foundation steps up (under the green hose pic) due to exterior grading. Therefore the builder put this knee wall in to keep the floor joists in the rancher level. The knee wall width is exactly the width of the step up in the foundation wall. My concerns are : The knee wall is not built on a footing it is built on slab. No double top plate. Perhaps, some future concerns regarding moisture wicking into wood components.
Has anyone seen this done like this before? Everyones thoughts are appreciated. So spill the beans, cheers!
