I do not understand your question. Do you have a picture of the situation you can post?

Snap together a couple pieces of the vinyl flooring, lay it over the strap and see if it's a problem. Go beyond the strap with the vinyl.
It may not be noticeable. If it is noticeable and the strap is over a joist you can lift the strap (after you mark its location) and chisel out enough to lower it. Is this a mobile home?

Single family? Yes or no is a better answer. The only reason I could see for straps in that location would be to attach to halves of a modular home. They also strap over the ridge.

No need to apologize, my question really had nothing to do with your problem, just my curiosity. I have built a couple hundred houses and have never seen straps like that in interior framing.

If that's an exterior wall, they probably did it when they framed to help tip the wall up. It doesn't look like it's in a joist, so I'd cut it off and pull the nails.

I have some of those straps in my home to create a continuous load path from the roof down to foundation for hurricane protection. I've never seen one used like that though. Any idea what is on the other side of the wall that it is anchoring?

When the wall was lifted in place there was nothing to tie that strap to. When the joists and subfloor were laid there was no reason for a strap.

AbleDog In case you aren't familiar with the technique, when framing 2nd story walls, they are commonly built on the floor deck, sheathed, a strap is nailed to the floor underneath them, (before the wall is built) then wrapped around the bottom of the bottom plate, and up onto the sheathing after the wall has been built. When the wall is stood up, it is in no danger of slipping off the building and falling off as long as the top of the wall is not pushed completely over. Variations of this technique are used. A lot of guys just use the metal strapping from the bundles of lumber.

Quite familiar with platform framing but have always seen 2x4 stop blocks used and never straps. I question what keeps the wall from sliding over the edge before the strap is attached? Going too far astray on this thread.

Because you snap a chalk line to represent where the inside edge of the bottom plate will be then you bend the strap up around the bottom of the bottom plate and nail it before you start framing the wall. The bottom plate is 4 or 6" away from the edge of the building.
