In reply to Rim Joist above egress window by David on May 23rd, 2002 08:47 AM [Go to top of thread]

LOCAL BUILDING INSPECTOR WANTS ME TO CONSULT A STRUCTURAL ENGINEER FOR HEADER SOLUTION ON THE REMOVAL OF A 32 IN WIDE BASEMENT WINDOW AND THE ADDITION OF A 48 INCH WIDE EGRESS WINDOW. THIS WALL RUNS WITH THE FLOOR JOISTS AND THEREFORE NO ENDS OF A JOIST WILL REST ABOVE THE WINDOW. CAN I PUT IN A STEEL LENTAL. IS THERE AN EASY SOLUTION?
