Platform Framing and Upper Floors

The details in upper floor framing are similar to the ground floor. No firestopping is required, as the construction method provides a joist hanger, which is a built-in firestopping and structural system. The height of the studs for each floor are determined by the desired ceiling height for that particular floor.
