Re: Light ga. steel publ.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
John, I am a member of LGSEA (as of about five months ago or so). You may
have missed many of our debates on steel stud. Try the SEAOC web site for
archives of our listservice postings. You will find many posts related to
steel stud. It is a common subject that comes up fairly often. LGSEA has
also been recommended and mentioned numerous times.
Thanks for bringing it up again, it is a worthwhile organization.
