Customer Question

I recently erected a 25'x36' metal building on a concrete slab. I had a 16'x24' wood frame room built inside the building using 2x6 framing and 16 foot 2x12 ceiling joists for extra support. Unfortunately the builder made the 16' side too wide which resulted in the ceiling joists being 3" short of reaching the end of one of the top plates. He sistered in a short piece to the ceiling joist nailing it to the header as well as to the ceiling joist. It overlaps the top plate by 12". Will this provide adequate support? Thanks, Jim.
JA: OK. Is there anything else important you think the Structural Engineer should know?
Customer: No.
