RE: Resident Engineer Manual

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

Harold,

 

There is the HUD Residential Structural Design Guide available for free download at http://www.huduser.org/publications/destech/residential.html. It’s a bit dated as it was published in 2000, but the general guidance is still good. Obviously, any specific examples or details may need to be updated to ASCE 7-05 and IBC ’06. We also used to have a Simplified Residential Framing Guide but I don’t see it posted anywhere so I’d have to go dig a copy out.

 

Also APA and AF&PA have numerous technical notes, builder’s guides, details, etc. also available for download to help with both engineering and general detailing (or inspection).

Speaking of QA QC, is anyone aware of a good Resident Structural Engineer Guide?
