Framing The Floor For The Stairwell

I've built up a column and added some more floor joists to accommodate the corner of the stairwell.

Notice where the short beam attaches to the I-joist... the building code calls for that area to be filled in with two pieces of 1/2" plywood on each side of the I-Joist. That makes the center part of the I-joist (the web) the same width as the top and bottom, and creates a good solid backing for the hanger that holds the end of the beam.
