I'd like to maybe prime (and prime and prime) and paint the OSB white and stain and the 1x4s and molding. Jack Larkinjlarkin1@law.villanova.edu
Quote from: Zavoot on April 27, 2009, 08:48:54 PMI'm new to this thread and the site but I'm facing the same dilemma! I trust the let in and don't think the extra 1/8th of an inch of let in will ever be a big deal. BUT - I have access to a planner and why not just run those 2x4s (1 1/2 by 3 1/2) through and make my own 5/4 boards - they are still framing grade ? ? ? and I don't need all those extra trimmers.

I told him we could use his advice but he would have to stop attacking the members of the forum. He banned himself as he would not follow my requests. I commonly either straighten his type out on my jobs or get rid of them if necessary through major unrelenting complaints to their bosses.
Quote from: Native_NM on June 03, 2010, 06:36:58 PMI think the issue is more complicated than that. I have done a fair bit of reading today on the subject. It seems the bigger issue is that notching more than a certain percentage might weaken the stud and lead to fracture or failure. Based on code, you are correct that a 2x4 would be adequate by itself for this plan. The issue (and I don't know the answer) is if an over-notched 2x6 is as strong as a full 2x4. Stated another way, an over-notched 2x6 might be weaker than an un-notched 2x4 even though there is more "meat" on its bones.I'll let you know what the good doctor (PhD engineer and PE) comes back with. I sent him a link to this specific thread.
