RE: Shearwall Blocking Requirements for


Is anyone else using this method described in the article described by Tom Skaggs? (sheet metal blocking)?  Also, this document indicates that the values are for blocked diaphragms.  Does this document apply at shearwalls also, considering the loading is similar for the two conditions?  Finally, I do not know of too many builders around here using staples.  Is that common elsewhere?
