Quality results in durability. Anyone in the new home building market will get a head start if they adopt the 2004 building code for durability now. The code will include:
1.All outer wall studs connected with truss plates. 2.All structural sheathing attached with screws. screws are now available with strips for strip gun drivers) 3.Prime lateral load outer wall sheathing will be directly under the drywall. 4.All shell drywall attached before interior walls are started.
Local contractors will find that larger than truss subassemblies will slowly become available at truss factories using the CAM part of CAD CAM Dean Youngkeit 21 North 100 East Willard, Utah 84340-0041 (435)734-0681 firstname.lastname@example.org See all links at: http://www.gemshellhouses.bigstep.com
