Looking for some assistance please with respect to local Building Codes in south Australia for tolerance limits to slab overhand of the bottom plate of timber frame.
Our bottom plate is the standard 90mm width, and in numerous places around the slab the bottom plate is overhanging by at least 25-30mm. I've spoken with our site supervisor, an independent building inspector and also tried to source reliable information online, but to date have not come up with a definitive answer as to what is the acceptable overhang allowed before it would be deemed to be defective.
I've been told anything <25mm is ok, someone else told me anything <20mm is ok, and then most interstate online references to their local building codes seem to suggest anything <10mm is acceptable??
Ideally I'd like to refer to the applicable building code here in SA so I know exactly where we stand. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
