We are starting a project
in Burley, Idaho and are having a hard time getting strait answers on design
criteria from the building official. If anyone has experience with recent
projects in the area, could you please contact me privately. I would like
to know what we should be using for design criteria. Specifically, we are
trying to answer the following questions:
Building official said they are changing to 2003 IBC "sometime after the first
of the year." Couldn't be more specific. What is the status of the
building codes in Idaho and is it different for each
Building official told me three different wind speeds during two phone
calls. 80 MPH and 110 MPH during one and 90 MPH during another.
ASCE-7 shows 90. Anyone know for sure?
Building official reported 25 PSF ground snow one day and 25 PSF roof snow
another day. Again, does anyone know for sure?
I would appreciate any
