Default Sill plate overhang

Is there a specific reason why there would be a sill plate overhang on the inside of the garage?

Usually because the foundation is out of square. How was the plate on the back wall, can't tell in you picture.

Everything else looked "normal" except this one length.

Looks like some one got lazy and did't rip the board down when they ran out of 2x6 or 8..... pick a dimention.

I'd tend to agree.

Is that the firewall? Sloppy.

Alright thanks guys. I wasn't worried about it just curious if there was a method behind the madness. Guess not.

I agree that they ran out of the correct width material and were too lazy to rip it and would "fix" it later on.
