Thanks for your replies. I set this up as a mock up for my building inspector to take a look at. He advised that I would have to sister the 2x8s, but unless I cut the ribbon, I can't get the full length 2x8 in there, so a short header is what I was thinking. Has anyone ever cut the ribbon and what did you use to support it?
