RE: Condo Collapse

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Pretty soft first story, but they may have scheduled gyp board interior 
shear walls.  Since the roof and most of the walls were still bare 
sheathing, that probably wasn't installed yet.  Or if it was installed, the 
 heavy rain could have turned it into oatmeal.  Pretty frugal design, but 
most likely means and (poor) methods?
