I need to run a vent through the wall of a Tudor house (double wall
construction). The hole will be through the batons, which is below the first
floor ceiling, but above the outside brick. I have a choice of two inside
stud cavities. Cavity #1 has two wires running through the top plate and
cavity #2 has a stud running through the outside wall, which sits on the
bricks. Does this outide wall actually support the second floor/roof or is
it only there for nailing the fibre board. In other words, can I cut off
Fortunately, the studs were only 9" tall (24" o.c.). I discovered this while
feeling around a bit more. The sole purpose of this little box must be to
give a nailing surface for the batons. I just knocked one out (Cavity #2)
and moved it over a few inches just in case.
