Is it not safe and more than likely a LB wall if it does run perpendicular? I understand your very detailed and knowledgable answer to the post, but in lay terms, is perpendicular usually LB?
Describe a case where a perpendicular wall is NOT LB? I have in the past been asked to remove many walls in homes for enlargement of one room or two into one big room. Once I determine the direction of the joists and a wall is perpendicular, my quick and fast answer is you cannot. Or, to save my B&%$ I will refuse it because of liability and in case the roof falls in.
When is a perpen wall not LB?
Thanks BC always respect your answers and your intel.
