227 Approaches Dry In

December 18th, 2012


Nestled in the foliage of serene Tidewater Plantation in North Myrtle Beach, work to complete dry in continued on lot 227. This houses cantilevered overhangs served several purposes. They run straight across even with plate level which helps define the freeze boards over top windows. The sub fascia is set at a predetermined height, in this case 2×6. They are energy efficient by allowing high rating R value insulation to travel to the perimeters of the exterior wall. Probably the best feature is the easy of installation of the soffit materials. It is a selling point I put this way to interested clients: “not everyone buys cantilevered overhangs from me, but those that do always reorder them”. Kinda a non confrontational way of gentle persuasion. I had a flash of the “Dos Equis” man (stay thirsty my friends..). Foundation strapping required in this 130 mile per hour wind zone was inlayed into the 7/16″ sheathing. Coastal construction differentiates itself from inland construction by the hurricane anchorage and foundation strapping requirements. Wall panel construction can accommodate these necessary connections just as truss designs are the point of reference for uplift values. Load paths are identified and the correctly sized header members, whether it be LSL,Timberstrand or LVL, are used to transfer the load to the foundation. I talked to the general contractor today about the overall performance of the component system. He commented about consistency being the most beneficial byproduct. When the products arrive, they are ready to be installed with the guess work removed.
