    I think she was in southern Ohio, Cincinnati area, I believe. Chad and the others are more northern Ohio, Cleveland Akron area I think they are 4+ hours apart.

    Cincinnati is about a 4.5 hour drive for me.

    Thank you to everyone in this thread for your concern and kind words. I appreciate it more than know. There was a small issue with someone being rude……I have forgave you. Don’t do that again. Now, I’m back here to learn, yap, admire others work, and maybe get somewhere with mine. So, let’s move forward.

    Glad to see you back @TaraC!



    @ChadM
    ..Thank you sir!

    @TaraC,
    Shame it had to come to that, Glad you came back. The work you and your husband do is awesome and will be more than glad to continue to read your posts.

    @Anonymous :) Because of this thread, I noticed today that we use Simpson Strong Tie jacks for bracing the masonry when we have to remove masonry courses/lintels at work. I’ll grab a picture and post tomorrow, just thought it was interesting. Thanks BTP

    @utopia78 would still like to see that pic! When we have a home with a brick or stone facade on the foundation, we have to remove the brick or stone section to thread the rod in, and then put back as cute as we can.

    No problem! I’ll upload some stills from some video last week of the Simpson jacks we use on Sunday. Also, welcome back!

    @tarac were you ever able to get things worked out to use the DTT1 brackets with your plan reviewer?

    @kurt@welkerhomes.com I’m actually #2 on the agenda for November’s building department meeting. Thanks to you, EthanB, and everyone else in this thread that gave me advice and feedback…I gave a nice formal submission pertaining to the building code that this county sets for themselves, and they are willing to take into consideration. Thank you again.

    @TaraC Sorry about not posting the pics yet. I’ll go through the GroPro and grab some stills tonght. We use the jacks with 2×4’s along the top to support the masonry. We do have to remove them as we go along and install lintels and masonry.

    @TaraC This was one of stills I was able to take from a video. I was working on a section of lintel doing Bluekin TWF and the jacks were removed. So, if you look to the left, they are the Simpson Strong-Tie Adjustable Elevated Post Base. They are height adjustable with a nut near the top. We removed the Soldier course and installed jacks as support along the way.We also had the header course as support. We use 2×4 on the top of the jacks and jack them up but not to tight to breaks any masonry bonds.

    Was hard to find any info at first on google but was able to find this picture also. Only difference would be the 2×4 would fit in a channel on the top.

    So it’s temporary shoring. I’d think they want more than a 2×4 for more strength.

    Actually every company I’ve been with uses 2×4 and/or jacks to brace masonry courses. It’s very common. Don’t forget you normally only have 4-5 courses to brace until a header row, and those courses generally don’t move due to wall ties.

    @utopia78 thank you Chris for the photos, and explaining things for me. What you do is certainly more advanced than anything I will ever do, but it’s good to learn and see…thank you for taking the time to do this.

    I saw this holdback by USP at the International Builders Show last week. It takes the DTT1 and improves it for situations where the joist do not li e up with the sill plates. It is adjustable so ut can be used with a variace of about 4 to 5″ between the bottom of the deck joist and the sill plate. It is not I their catalog yet. The hanger is called an ADTT-TZ

    @tarac. Did you ever get the Simpson DTT1 approved
