Suppose I have a continuous joist supported somewhere in the middle. For ease let's say it's a 24 foot continuous joist, and there's a bearer right in the middle at the 12 foot mark.
Here's a picture I found online.
I know I should not notch or bore in the middle 1/3 of the joist. Does a bearer make this joist two spans per this image?
Can I notch between 0'-4', 8'-16', and 20'-24'?
Or 0'-8' and 16'-24'?
