|In response to Re: Notching Load-nearing Stud|
: I am getting ready to rough in valves for my new vanity area. The wall is an outside wall (therefore load-bearing). If I am going to center my set-up on the available wall, I would have to notch one of the load-bearing studs enough for part of the valve to fit in and to allow access for line hook-up. What is the proper way to do this? Is there a proper method to notch a load-bearing stud that makes it both safe and proper?
: Thanks for your assistance.
A maximum 50 %notch in one stud will NOT create any problem. Only notch in halfway (max).. The wall being attached to this stud will help this stud avoid any deflection. Hube
