Finally working on plans for finishing the basement, and have run into a
minor detail. We want to put up a wall running beside the center I-beam.
Problem-The stringer for the basement stairs runs within a quarter inch of
the top of the I beam. I\ \
Is it acceptable to notch the bottom of the stringers so we can fit the top
plate into that space? The stringers are 2X12, and I would need to cut a
notch the size of a 2X4 for the top plate.
