if the span is 16' then divide that by 2 + the 1'-4" overhang for a total 9'-4" then divide that by the cosign of angle (22.6199)associated with 5/12 which comes out to be 10.1111' or just short of...

I'm sure for 5' of non load bearing a single flat 2 x 4 would be fine but the (2) 2x4's would be even better and less deflection

Either will work

When I did my basement I prebuilt the wall segments to the height of the shortest stud in the run and shimmed the top. I've seen plenty done both ways so I don't think there is only one right way.

Tony it is not very likely that they built a house with a beam that can handle at least twice of the original weight. Of course we'd need to know what is framing into it but I really doubt it.

Prior to the modifications the 12' joists only carried 16" o/c loads but now you've attached a 4' header to them so they may need doubled the entire length but totally depends on the use of that...

Not sure

but why would the knee or half wall height be any different than if a railing was there instead

you say you have 9' 2 x 6 framing into this beam

but you don't mention if anything is framing into the other side of this beam. If you have only 9' /2 x 45 = 202.5 plf. If you have something framing into this from the other side it will likely be...

Since we have very little info

I would not drill this. You have provided little to no info on span spacing etc. All of which help in the determination of if holes can be drilled, Maybe you could attach the wires to the bottom...

ditto the others

If you don't want any hassles then you should get it permitted. The hassle will come when you try to sell the house if you don't get a permit

depends on depth and loading and spacing

the answer to your question depends on the depth of the beam, the spacing and what it is used for. Another serious consideration is how much deflection (sag) is acceptable to you. Code for floors...

I guess I'm unsure of a couple of things

I'm also curious why...

one of the other methods

is using red heads. You drill a hole in the plate and concrete then beat these things into the hole and then tighten them up.

that you have a new house. If it is new what did the builder say about it? What size are your floor joists? I'm assuming they are conventional lumber and not trusses or I joists.You can't just put...

I'd bet

that is why you have a balloned framed wall. It is possible to design for wind using other methods but you'll need a PE to seal it. BTW I lived in O'town for 13 years!

where are you located

some places started requiring them after Hurricane Andrew due to the fact that a lot of the houses that were lost were vaulted ceilings with regular gables that blew in.
