Proposed roof design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Ladies and Gentlemen;

An architectural client of mine is proposing an unorthodox (to me) roof
design and has asked me to review. I have some concerns, but I thought I
would solicit comments from the engineering community before I

When he first described the system to me, I thought the sheathing would
be applied directly on the roof rafters.



UBC/CBC 70 MPH Wind, Exposure C
Seismic Zone 4 (although residential construction and diaphragm shears
should be small < 150 PLF).

Your comments would be most appreciated.
