Thanks MelNRob for the feedback and advice, I feel better now knowing its normal but will check with SS if its a weight bearing part just in case.
Sorry mel_mox, I should've pointed out the defects
The timber has chips and the other one which Building1 help post looks like a part is broken off.
Hey puppyso. I wouldn't worry about it either. Also, check to if the frame is hanging over the slab or it not in line. A good frame should be build on the edge of the slab.
PM me your email address and I'm send you a doc with all the building tolerances. It's a good reference.
can you send me the doc for the building tolerances as well please? would be good to reference.
RE: frame overhang - i think there was only one spot where there was a slight overhang that was miniscule (less than 10mm). Be more concerned if the overhang is drastic...
no probs... I started a page on my blog for useful building infomation & doc. Take a look
