QuoteStrength is a life safety issue, it is a "must".Deflection is a serviceability issue, it is a "may". Things like cracked drywall, opening trim, planes out of plumb, excess vibration (may occur). These are qualitative things rather than safety issues... (but are still important and need to be considered)
Quote from: Blessed on April 11, 2021, 01:42:09 PMKinda interesting stuff. I was worried that the roof on our cabins woodshed might not take the snowload. 2x4spanning 8' that's basically flat. 3-1/2" slope in 8'. 2x4 on edge. 24" on center as I was short on lumber. It's remote so no lumber yards. I want to add more 2xs to make it 1' on center for roof. The snow gets kinda deep. There was 6' deep snow on the ground. There's no real foundation. I cut some 6" thick wafers from some old utility poles that set on the mostly spagna moss n tree roots. Been there a few years now . Here's a summer picture for reference. I'll get some snow pics.
