While I feel that rim (band) Joists should be in contact with and be supported by the sill plate, the structure pictured here was given the green light by Nashville “Codes” department.
What are your thoughts?
- The rim joists overhang the foundation and thus are hanging in mid air. 2) The rim joists on two sides of the home are supported by nothing, even though they support a wall plate above them that supports the exterior walls on the ends of the home.
- Last, but not least, there is no sill plate here.
