    I am have a room addition built and noticed today the plumber drill a large hole at the top edge of the 4 x 6 girder that supports the floor joists. Is this bad? If so, is there a way to fix it?

    You may want to add support there if that was for support. How long a span is that? And what is it over?

    The span is about 6” over the crawl space.
