Framing for placing posts on a conventional floor deck
« on: August 27, 2011, 12:06:50 PM »
I have my foundation in, and the floor framing just about completed. I am interested if anyone has any comments good or bad reference the pockets I framed in for my posts to sit in. I had initially thought of a different approach, but settled on this layout.

The floor framing is full rough cut 2X8s  with a 4-5 year old  8X8 I cut and mortised around the mud sill, all setting on pilasters poured inside the stem wall.



The plan now is, the box is slightly oversize to allow some movement during the install in case I am off by a 1/2" or so. Then once the posts/walls are plumb and  where I want them, I intend on shimming them to hold them in place. You can see the temporary blocks I have set up for the raising. Once these are taken off the floor deck will be installed, which is 1 1/2" car decking/ T&G Alaskan Hemlock. The metal strapping is set in the stem wall, and will be nailed up the posts.

I plan on the raising sometime after the 15th of Sept., so if anyone has any suggestions I could always change my plans... :D
