RE: wood framing - commercial structures

Hm. The Salt Lake Tabernacle is about a hundred and fifty years old. The roof structure is entirely wood-framed. It’s only now getting an earthquake retrofit to bring it up to code.


It is a fallacy that “wood framed structures don’t last.” Beware of “conventional wisdom” based on the notion that “if I haven’t been using it, it must not be worth using.”

My experience with this subject is limited… in my opinion if it’s going to last, you should be using conc. and steel.
