How you getting on? Did you manage to get your 1000 jobs done and have any progress on your build?

Thanks for checking in dude! Life's been crazy lately. I've taken on too many recording projects (need to record to make money to build my studio and live!) and other things like landscaping have taken over my life. I'm hoping to get back into the basement to build shortly as I'm feeling time slip through my fingers. I wish I had more to share, but you might have noticed I haven't even had time to visit the forum! I apologize and I hope I have more time and energy to put into my build and the forum.

Greg

Hey Gregwor,

I had one question regarding the cleats you used in your beef up.

It looks like you have engineered I-Beams there where the web is OSB and the flanges are 2x3's

It looks like you cut the top flange (2x3) to get the cleat in. It seems okay since your sort of filling back in the gap with the cleat, but just wondering if that may be an issue?

I'm pretty sure with metal i-beams, cutting a hole or notch into the web is okay, but cutting the flange is a no-no.
