mgbinspect Posted September 23, 2019 Report Share Posted September 23, 2019 Yesterday, during a pre-drywall new construction inspection, I noticed that the framed window opening headers were 2 x 4's instead of 2 x 6's or 2 x 8's. The wall thickness is six inches, so there are three 2 x 4's in each header. Since this is the first time I've seen this, I wonder if any of my fellow home inspectors have run across this and found it to be an approved practice? Thanks in advance for any input.
