Fortunately, there are no conventional framing conventions up here in the
mountains.  Even the smallest deck addition must be engineered.

+AD4-And let me guess, 1/2 (or more) participating in seismic mass? Yep, this

+AD4-Actually Bill, I wouldn't call it REAL engineering unless you had this
+AD4-scenario with a roof live load of 150 psf or more.(tic)

+AD4APg-Try some REAL engineering like a custom home in So. Cal. (apparently my
+AD4APg-colleagues in No. Cal don't do many custom homes) where no walls stack,
+AD4APg-the exterior is glass, the owner is personally involved and the contractor
+AD4APg-doesn't have a clue or desire about how to read plans.
