Mr. Duarte:

If my memory serves me, despite our encouragement to infill with studs at
16 inches on center, Timberpeg preferred to use their "stress skin" panel.
I believe they had an ICBO report for shear values.

Thank you for the Info Ms. Maffei, but I have one more question. How Did
you determine the allowable shear capacity for the Plywood nailing if the
framing is not a typical 2x @ 16"o.c. but rather a 4x or     6x post @
4'-00" o.c.
Thank you fopr any father help.
