Sharing Holdowns @ Corners

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Is it permissible to share a single holdown at a corner where 2 shear walls intersect?  I was thinking of configuring the corner studs to be nailed together as a built up post and using one holdown.  Is this commonly done?  Any specific recommendations of how to share a holdown?  I don’t find any details about this in anchor catalog.

 

Thanks.
