16. What is the rule of thumb for constructing girder pockets (Page 5.18, Section 4.2.5)? Answer Be 1” wider than the beam and the beam must have 4” of bearing on the wall

18
17. Describe how wooden joists are normally placed in relation to their centers and their crown (Page 5.20, Section 4.3.0)? Answer Crown (curve) up and 16” from joist center to next joist center (16” O.C. - on center)

19

21

27
**Refer to the illustration to answer the following questions.**

When you see a statement like this…

28
imagine this and… Sill Beam or Girder Pier Foundation

29
this and… Solid Bridging Joist

30
this! Sheathing

31
**26. How many lineal feet of 2 X 6 sill material would be needed (Page 5.40, Section 7.1.0)?**

Answer Perimeter – total of the length of the 4 sides (2 X 52’)+(2 X 32’) = 168’

32
**27. How many lineal feet of 2 X 12s are needed for the beam (girder) (Page 5.40, Section 7.2.0)?**

Answer Length X 3 – (3 X 52’) = 156’

33
**28. How many 2 X 8 joists are needed if the joists are spaced 16" OC (Page 5.40, Section 7.3.0)?**

Answer Use formula – (3/4L +1) where L equals building length. Because joists will only reach 16’ and the floor is 32’ wide the result must be multiplied by So, 2(3/4L+1)…….. 2((3/4 X 52)+1) = 2(39 +1) = 2(40 ) = 80 joists

34
**29. How many lineal feet of 2 X 8s are needed for the joist headers (Page 5.40, Section 7.3.0)?**

Answer Length of one side + length of other side (at the head or end of the joists) 2(L)… 2(52’) = 104’

35
**30. How many lineal feet of 2 X 8s are needed for solid bridging (Page 5.41, Section 7.4.0)?**

Answer Joist span is 16’ or less so one row is needed for each set of joists from sill to girder. 2(L)… 2(52’) = 104’

36
**31. How many 4' X 8' panels of subflooring are needed (Page 5**

31. How many 4' X 8' panels of subflooring are needed (Page 5.41, Section 7.5.0)? Answer Surface area = L X W for a rectangle so 52’ X 32’ = 1664 sq. ft.. Divide that by the number of sq. ft. of surface in on one panel of sheathing (4’ X 8’ = 32 sq. ft.) 1664 sq. ft. / 32 sq. ft. = 52 panels needed
