The blue highlighted carrier/girder is a main running the width of the house paralell to the front wall. The green highlighted beam runs perpendicular to the main and is attached to it using a ledger with no hangers to be found. Comments, opinions, help? Hangers? Support post? Post and hangers? SE ? I’m not sure why they stopped using full length joists at this point. This occurs in the middle of the living room. Trying to use up the shorter ones I guess.

Looks like it needs hangers or support underneath. Hangers is the easiest fix. You can see it better than us but from what I can tell, I would call it out for appearing to need hangers at the beam intersection.



Inspection Nirvana!


We're NACHI. Get over it.

Good catch! Very cool graphics on the picture.


The only guess for why they changed direction of the joist is to pick up a cantilever condition to the left of your picture. It always make me nervous to see framing with no mechanical connection (even the short joist).

I would suggest a structural engineer.
