ASCE/SEI 7-05

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm trying to find a definitive answer within ASCE/SEI 7-05 to this question, but so far have not:
 
A single story rectangular building with an small (3'-0" or so) overhang.  Gable Roof with less than 7 degree slope.
For the walls, dimension "a" is measured from the ends of the walls - no problem.
But for the roof, is Dimension "a" also measured from the ends of the wall?  Or is it measured from the edge of the roof?
