I have mastered many things in life, but carpentry is not one. I need to replace some flooring, and floor joist, that rotted from water damage, and it does not look like how i have seen others.
The joist seems to be notched, sitting on the sill plate, in fact the whole flooring looks odd. I have the main beam, and the joists are nailed to each other, and rest above the beam. Normally what i see are hangers, attached to the support beam, and then attached to a ledger board (i think that is what it is called), but mine seems to be notched and no hangers.
Is this normal? The house was built in 1985, not sure if that matters.
