Re:  Wood shear walls

Dear David Gorton:

An additional 2x sill block is what we have used successfully on seismic
retrofit projects.  Like you mentioned, the anchor bolt attachment to the
additional sill plate blocking is critical.  The new blocking keeps the
staggered shear wall nailing from splitting the original 2x sill plate.
