Newer Home/6 Years Old. We are finishing our basement. Sadly, we failed an inspection today b/c the Inspector found 2 issues (that existed when the home was originally built). The one issue I like to find a fix for is a large hole on the joist. When the home was first inspected, they recorded it but it was never corrected and was then missed on the final inspection! And now we have to find a fix for it. I have researched the "simpson bracket"; however, due to the location of this issue, it does not appear to the be solution. Any suggestions or visual illustration is greatly appreciated. Thanks! "Frustrated Home Owner".
