RE: Advanced Framing - residences

What City did you do your design in?  Was the framer receptive or not. It
seems to be more labor intensive from what I have seen.

And as Neil said; a single top plate with a strap connecting butted 2x4 or
2x6 seems quite flexible and lacking strength. The biggest

restriction is all walls and buildings will be on a 2' module, so trusses
line up with studs.

Yes. It is a giant PITA. (And it sure didn't save any money.
