Re: Lateral Analysis Software for Wood Structures?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bill:

Both require a considerable amount of modeling time.
KeyLat was not able to handle split levels at floor and roof  the last time
I tried using it on a custom home with different roof levels.

I have given up on new residential home design.
For the amount of time it takes to do it per current code requirements, no
one is willing to pay for the structural design.
