How to Tell if Your Wall is Load Bearing, How To Cut a Doorway in a Load Bearing Wall
Be sure to view our other video on How To Eliminate Wobble in a kitchen wall: https://youtu.be/KWIHdWjPKC0 Tools we recommend: Dewalt Framing Nailer Kit: https://amzn.to/2BIespt It's a 20-Volt MAX XR Lithium-Ion battery cordless brushless 2-speed 33-degree framing nailer. This comes with charger and case too. I got this as a great alternative to having a compressor and twisted hoses everywhere to power a framing nailer to nail the bottom plate and wall studs back together, and add cabinet blocking to our stud walls. Here we show you DIY friends how to tell if a wall is load bearing, and we explain the physics and engineering behind load bearing walls, and break down each of the components of a stud wall for you in this bearing wall design example, like jack studs and kind studs, both important parts of your load bearing wall framing. Keep in mind this house was built in 1946 on the cheap for veterans, and so the header over this door frame resting on the jack studs was not correct. Today's building codes for bearing wall framing would have the header as a two 2x6 boards, with a half inch plywood sandwiched in between and they would be mounted with the 6" side upward vertically, not laying down flat on the jack studs as the door frame on this load bearing wall shows. If you are about to take down your wall in the kitchen to open up the kitchen to the living room, you need to know if that is a • bearing wall structure because you can't just demolish that wall, there are certain bracing precautions you must use prior to load bearing wall removal. So at this point, you really have to study and learn how to know if a wall is load bearing. A load bearing wall is a wall that directly bears the point load weight of the roof trusses or a second floor above it. If it is a true load bearing wall, then usually the floor joists of the attic above your wall will sit with one end of the joist on the top of your stud wall, and so people remodeling a house need to determine if the wall is load bearing or not. If you see a floor joist end on top of your stud wall, then it is a load bearing wall, and you know you can't just remove load bearing wall until you put the new framing in. The strict definition of the load bearing wall is if the ends of a roof truss or floor joists sit on top of your stud wall, then you know there is a point load going down to ground. But what if the joists are just traveling across the top of your stud wall, and the joists are supported on both ends of the house, is your wall still load bearing? In this potential bearing wall design example, opinions vary. It's a tough question, not everyone is a structural engineering expert. I witnessed 2 contractors debating over whether this was a load bearing wall. Some people say yes these are load bearing walls, and some say no. But you cant go wrong in treating it as a load bearing wall, and just make sure you don't take the whole wall down at once. to be safe for load bearing wall removal, you can always build a temporary stud wall to brace the ceiling joists until you replace the bearing wall with a beam and its supports. But if it is a load bearing wall, you need to build bracing to support the floor joists or other loads above prior to removing any studs from this wall. Also the header over the door should be made of two 2x6 pieces of wood nailed together and mounted so the 6" tall part should be the header over the door top. You may need a 1/2" thick filler piece nailed between them. This is what I think is the funny part, you have to build a bearing wall framing structure in order to take down a load bearing framing structure. Load bearing wall removal If the wall is load bearing, then you cannot just start pulling studs out of it to open up your kitchen for that open concept look because then the load, which is your roof or second floor, could come crashing down. You need to build a temporary stud wall and mount it pretty close to your load bearing wall to support the ceiling structure above it before you can remove that load bearing wall. At the risk of sounding repetitive, do not remove any load bearing walls unless you have some type of shoring or temporary bearing wall framing installed. You have to install a load bearing wall to remove a load bearing wall. Sounds counter-intuitive, but think of this temporary bearing wall as a stunt double for the original. Based on the information in this video, you'll be able to quickly determine whether your wall is load bearing or not, and see the necessary anatomy of what a properly framed door cut out should look like to create a cutout for a door in a load bearing wall. Once you decide to cut out a door frame into the wall, this video also shows you the anatomy of the stud wall framing, and discusses the wall framing, the header board, the jack stud, and the king stud, all components in involved in framing a door into the middle of stud wall framing.

Earthquake Brace + Bolt
EBB is offered by the California Residential Mitigation Program, a joint power authority of the California Earthquake Authority (CEA) and the Governor's Office of Emergency Services (OES). EBB was developed to help homeowners lessen the potential for damage to their houses during an earthquake. A residential seismic retrofit strengthens an existing house, making it more resistant to earthquake activity such as ground shaking and soil failure, by bolting the house to its foundation and adding bracing around the perimeter of the crawl space. Owners of houses in designated ZIP Codes will be eligible for an incentive payment of up to $3,000 to help pay costs associated with retrofitting their houses. A typical retrofit may cost between $2,000 and $10,000 depending upon whether the homeowner performs the work as a DIY project or hires a contractor, the location, the size of the house, and the amount of work involved.

Attic Insulation Done Wrong… and How to Do It Right!
http://www.drenergysaver.com | 1-888-225-6260 In Episode 71 of the On the Job Video series, Larry Janesky, owner and founder of Dr. Energy Saver, walks us through the attic of a home in Connecticut that had been previously insulated by another contractor to illustrate common mistakes being perpetrated by many insulation contractors across the country. The owners of this home had serious comfort issues, with uneven temperatures around the house and rooms that were just drafty and hard to heat. They called contractors from the state energy program for help. After a quick energy audit, the contractors informed the homeowners that they would benefit from additional attic insulation -- and the contractor was then hired to add inches of blown fiberglass to the attic. After the work was performed, however, the home was still just as uncomfortable as it was before. That is when they decided to call in Dr. Energy Saver and find out what went wrong. After performing a blower door test, Larry and his team realized that there was a significant amount of air leaking in and out of the house, greatly impacting comfort and energy savings. Sure enough, when Dr. Energy Saver’s technicians inspected the recently insulated attic they found out that no air sealing was performed in the area. The only way to stop cold air from leaking into a house and making it uncomfortable is to stop heated air from leaking out – and since heated air rises, it usually leaks out of the upper levels of the house. The smallest gaps in the building, such as those around pipes and wires, lights, bathroom fans, duct chases and other ceiling fixtures, can amount to huge leakages. Blown fiberglass does nothing to stop air leakages. The air flows right through it. It is, therefore, very important to thoroughly air seal the attic completely before applying insulation. In this case, Dr. Energy Saver had to vacuum all the fiberglass insulation out of the attic just to be able to access the areas that needed to be sealed. After air sealing the attic, a new blower door test showed that they were able to reduce overall air leakage by 20%. After that, new plywood dams were built to contain the new cellulose insulation, which has a higher R-Value per inch than fiberglass. This brought the R-Value of the attic insulation up to U.S. Department of Energy’s recommended levels for the Northeast. According to Larry, installing attic insulation without air sealing is malpractice, yet it is a very common practice among contractors because homeowners aren’t always aware of the problem. We hope this video will help homeowners across the U.S. make informed decisions when it comes to improving comfort and energy efficiency in their homes.

Wall Framing Trick
http://www.AsktheBuilder.com founder, Tim Carter, shows a nifty trick when framing walls for a house. Don't allow an interior wall to touch an exterior wall. Leave a 3/4-inch gap so you can slide drywall in one giant piece instead of having to cut it at the corners. This wall framing trick also helps prevent air infiltration because the vapor barrier and drywall are solid along the entire exterior wall surfaces of the entire house. You save lumber too because there's no need for lathe catcher studs at the intersection of the two walls.

Designing Tiny House Gravity Feed Water System & Testing Tanks
I am working on my tiny house gravity feed water system. This will simply be two water tanks up in the tiny home loft which will have water in them. The water pressure from gravity should be enough to provide running water in my kitchen and bathroom sinks. I took the tanks outside to test them for water leaks. I put in a nipple and an end cap so I could put some water in them. I brought up 10 gallons of water from the creek in two food grade 5 gallon water jugs. I poured a bit of water into one tank to see if it would hold water. It leaked in two places. So I tightened the fittings hoping to stop the leaks. Unfortunately I found out that the plastic piece that holds the metal elbow pipe in place is cracked and that is leaking. This is a part of the tank itself so this water tank is eliminated from use in my tiny house water system. I took one tank upstairs in the loft to see where it would fit best. I have two really strong walls in the loft. The floor right over the bathroom wall is built strong with 4 studs under a 5 foot span. On the back wall I have cripples all the way from the loft floor joists to the floor of the tiny house downstairs. The loft floor joists are tied into the wall studs as well. This is a very strong wall. I will use a couple 2x8 boards from the old barn to spread out the load across more of the floor surface area under the two water tanks. After moving things around a bit and testing various ideas I ended up with the water tanks on the back side of the tiny house parallel with the bumper of the tiny house trailer. This seems to be the best place. This allows me to have space for bed and also a place to sit by the window upstairs and study or read a book if I want. Now I just need to get two water tanks that will hold water tightly and I will have running water in the tiny house on wheels.

A Guide to the 2009 IRC® Wood Wall Bracing Provisions
While lateral bracing is just one of many important factors to consider when designing, performing plan review, building and inspecting a residential structure, it is also one of most common sources of confusion and misapplication. This book was jointly developed by ICC and APA—the Engineered Wood Association to help designers, builders, building officials and others effectively understand and apply the wood-frame lateral bracing requirements of the 2009 International Residential Code® (IRC). This new guide covers lateral forces on a house, the history of bracing provisions, code limitations, permissible bracing options, connection details for bracing systems, pony and cripple wall requirements, and whole house considerations using illustrated design examples. It also includes more than 200 full-color tables, figures, and photographs. 255 Pages
