I'm laying out the framing for an exterior corner in a 1-story, wood
light frame slab-on-grade residential addition. I would like to have
two openings on either side of the corner, very close. Is there any
problem with using a studs of a standard 3-stud corner as the king
studs for the openings? That is, I'd like to apply the trimmer studs
for the headers directly to the outer studs of the 3-stud corner.
The openings are narrow enough (3') that shear requirements for the
two walls can be handled on the other side of the openings, and the
layout I describe leaves just the right amount of room for interior
trim in the corner. Is there any other concern I'm overlooking?
