Ceiling Joist Solid Bridging

Day #96

September 04, 2019 – Just a short blog today. Woke up this morning feeling tired. Not sure what is going on. Maybe it was the constant up and down the ladders, but the only thing I accomplished today was the installation the of the ceiling joist solid bridging.

I’ve written before about solid bridging. To recap:

Solid bridging provides lateral support to twisted joists and it helps them maintain a vertical orientation. It also facilitates load sharing. Load sharing across wooden joists is important because of the large variation in material properties found between the joists.

The ceiling joist solid bridging is complete in roof section two.

Tomorrow I will start the roof rafter installation. The weather has been awesome all week. I hope to get more done than I did today.
