WOOD FRAME CONSTRUCTION MANUAL FOR ONE-AND TWO-FAMILY DWELLINGS
|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
The scope statement limits applicability of the provisions of the Wood Frame Construction Manual to one- and two-family dwellings. This limitation is related primarily to assumed design loads and to structural configurations. Code prescribed floor design loads for dwellings generally fall into the range of 30 to 40 psf, with few additional requirements such as concentrated load provisions. In these applications, use of closely spaced framing members covered by structural sheathing has proven to provide a reliable structural system.
