MD any thoughts on the foundation plans....
hhbartlett Thanks! More in between Truro and New Glasgow area stones throw from the 104 snowmobile and 4wheeler trail. The lines on the drawing are 2 ply laminated 2x8 then stringing 2x6 between them for the floor joists. Joists are both nailed and strung with joist hangers as well. We went this way as eventually we will have a dual loft with a bridge and the supports for the loft are triple 2x6 stretching 16 ft across with one end support by a wall and the other by a 3ply 2x6 beam and all points correspond to the point load then to the supports below.Well that's the game plan anyways. You know what happened with the best laid plans...lolWith so much countryside available in NS why not build something a little closer to home? That was a determining factor for me as I wanted something far enough from home to be removed to everything but close enough to have continuous use all year. For me it is only about 30 minutes from dooryard to dooryard. I think if I was too far I feared I would be spending the money for once maybe twice a year and for that I could rent somewhere.
