Vigniette question on beams

Postby elpy » Fri Jun 29, 2018 10:54 am

On walls that are NOT shared between lower & upper floors, is it acceptable to show beams only on uppler level?

I’ve seen only upper floor beams on the forum but on the ARE sample passing solution (lower left corner of building) shows beams on both lower and upper levels for the short section of the wall that is not shared.

Looking for some clarity,

Thank you!

Knowing the purpose of beams makes it really easy.
I have a post here somewhere that tells you the 3, and only 3, places where beams belong.
