I'm adding an extension to my existing house.
My house is on a sub-floor and we are adding a master bedroom, en suite etc.
I have the new stumps set in the concrete looking lovely and level
How do I connect the new bearers to the existing bearers?
My carpenter suggested a butt join, but I thought it had to be a halving join????
Any light shed on this subject would much welcomed!!
