Reading on this site I realized that due to the difficulty, joists can't be pocketed according to the Philadelphia construction code. My question has to do with pocketing about 8-10 joists when new brick/block walls are rebuilt, after taking down the back wallls where the kitchen used to be? Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Hello, and welcome to Home Improvement. I'm not a construction expert, but it doesn't seem clear what you mean. Perhaps if you edited a photograph or diagram into your question it would be clearer. – Daniel Griscom Jan 16 at 0:54
