Wood design values for vintage building

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Can someone who performs wood grading provide a realistic assessment of
wood species and grade for design purposes for existing in-place timbers
- e.g., by visual examination of circa 1910 heavy timber construction?
And is there any source for estimated capacities of old proprietary
timber connectors (e.g., "Gupley Model 75R")?
