    As you can see, this is not the best transition from a poured concrete foundation to an exterior wall of a walk out basement. What code issues do you see? I will throw in the photo from the bottom of the wall too. Click on the photos to enlarge.

    In pic 1 ... double top plate does not extend over the concrete wall, and the i-joist is sitting on the concrete ... secured with concrete nails?

    Sometimes we see a TYP foundation stud and sometimes a white wood stud with sill sealer.

    Is the I-joist on a treated sill?

    Double top plate end joints should break a 24-inches

    TYP bottom sill anchoring? Looks like they used concrete nails and plumbers strap?

    What holds the end of the sheathing in place, or does it lap over the concrete?
