Re: RESIDENTIAL: Wood Framing Tolerances for Plumbness

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You've probably already got what need from others, but here is another
suggestion.  Figure out what is acceptable.  You know what the loads are,
and you probably know how much the walls are out of plumb.
If doesn't work, then make them fix it.  If it does work, and the home owner
finds it acceptable don't worry about it.

Dan Goodrich, P.E.
