Beam And Post Hardware

Here's one way to attach a beam to the wall and create a superior connection.

Sometimes beams like these are used for drag connections and this would be a great way to prevent the walls from buckling or bowing over time, from the weight of the roof.

Builders should be aware that, hardware like this is usually difficult to drywall over. These brackets will usually produce the same problem on the exterior of the house and will require a little more attention when finishing.

There are other ways to make this connection and you could always ask your engineer for an alternative, if these metal brackets are going to create a problem with your Interior or exterior finishes.
