Notched Joist

I have a question about a notched joist. I did the Inspection today and there was a guy there that was argueing with me that if this was a problem or not. That are your thoughts on the matter :wink: Problem or not??

Problem. There should be no notching in the middle 1/3 of the span of the joist.

You need to see Paige from InterNachi TV to get that info. LOL

Thanks Nick! I could not figure out what was wrong with the link.

Thank you all. I love it when I’m right :wink:

Don’t forget to have them fix the NM Cables on the bottom of the joists as well. Install running boards or bore holes in the joist for the wiring.

Have sawsall will plumb

And recommend they bore the holes in the middle third with the other notch. :stuck_out_tongue:

if the lumber is oversized for the span, the bottom couple inches may be irrelevant anyway. just saying…

Damn, everything is a MESS…
