If this is Oregon use the 2003 Oregon Dwelling Specialty Code (based on the 2003 IRC). Anything within 1500 ft. of the ocean is exposure D. If you can't get a conventional design to work then I believe the Oregon Structural Specialty Code is 2003 IBC based.
Good Luck. The combination of 110 mph exp. D and SDC D2 will make for a very challenging design.

Let?s say I have a house that?s 600 feet or so from the ocean, West coast. ASCE 7-02 governs.
Between the waterline and the house is a hill, evergreen trees, and other houses. It?s clearly surface roughness B all around.
Question1 : What is the design wind exposure?
Question 2: would it make any difference if using the 1997 UBC?
