RE: Lumber Lengths

Yeah, even though these have very little gravity load due to the layout, even at 20 feet, w/ 16” o.c. spacing, 2x6 DF#2’s are overstress due to wind.


I’ll probably switch to 2x8’s for the studs and likely either need a splice or timberstrand studs for the really tall walls… just seems kinda weird putting those on a barn.

It is 20 feet in our area.  What about 91/2" TJI's for the tall wall?
