Quote from: e12pilot on June 01, 2021, 06:04:58 PMBuild: 12'x16' (w x l), on pier and beam foundation.Wall height: 9' (2x6 w/double top plate)Gable roof with 12:12 pitch2 x 1.75"x14" LVL ridge beam 2.2EThere will be a loft on the south side for 6.5' with beams running width wise (thinking 4x8 (12' span))My question is on the gable wall framing and triple checking I have it correct. Will be partially balloon framing the gable walls and sending 3-2x6 studs from bottom plate to rake top plate. In addition will be strapping the other studs with 16 gauge straps on exterior and interior through sheathing (MSTA30s). The site is protected from wind but I want to be really sure the gable ends are sturdy. The roof will be sheathed with 5/8" CDX on 2x10 DF rafters. Following everything I can in the WFCM 2015 in terms of fastening schedules, etc. Anything concerning/things that seem amiss in the plan?
