floating concrete floor

Posted by Ron on February 4th, 2002 09:39 PM

I recently framed my basement which has a floating slab for expansive soils. I used a 2x4 plate 3" from a 2x4 nailed to the floor to allow expansion and fixed the plate to the floor with spikes. Do the spikes need to be free moving through the plate or can they be hammered through a smaller hole drilled in the plate? Thanks.
