joists. When regular floor joists run parallel to the
intended overhang, the inside ends of the cantilevered
joists are fastened to a pair of double joists (fig. 1-20).
Nailing should be through the first regular joist into the
ends of the cantilevered joists. Framing anchors are
strongly recommended and often required by the
specifications. A header piece is also nailed to the
outside ends of the cantilevered joists.
Butted over a Girder
Joist ends can also be butted (rather than lapped)
over a girder. The joists should then be cleated together
with a metal plate or wooden cleat, as shown in
Figure 1-21.Butting joists over a girder.
