Hi All,

So we are about to add a whole new floor to a bothie. Now the whole new build is wooden frame, so my question is how do you attached the bottom C16's to the top of the existing brickwork?

Was thinking chemical fixings. What would the normal process be.

Not an expert, but if the brickwork is in good condition expansion bolts, but resin fixings have to be a safer bet. Wouldn't C24 be better for fixing to, fewer knots etc.

Thanks,

Yeah will more than likely use C24 anyway :) I was thinking resin, or chemical fixings. Seems to be the best option, as everything will be built off that :)

Personally I'd just use screws and plugs. It's only to stop it moving sideways.

Normal process would be screws and plugs.

Masonry extensions tied with wall starters have five such plugs and screws, no resin, no bolts, no problems.
