We are installing pot lights in the basement. Basement is finished and a few pot lights come directly under the cross bridging. I like where the pot lights are being installed.
My question is - is it ok to remove a few bridging blocks?
The bridging holds the joists in place and keeps them from twisting under load.
They are an integral part of the engineered design.
Best to leave them in place and alter your design slightly.
The bridging will normally be the same distance off the walls (parallel) so they should be easy to avoid in the new design.
