Hip and Valley Fill

While we’ve had success using hangers, we prefer to make cheek cuts in hip and valley jacks.

To cut the jacks, we first nail the web stiffeners to both sides of the I-joist, then make the cut with our Big Foot 10 1/4-inch saw.

The jacks on the 8/12 side landed on the valley at an 8-degree angle. The only way we could cut this was to freehand with a chain saw.

The cuts came out perfectly.
