This idiot used non engineered native lumber to frame it.
I used to think my 2600 square foot home was comfortable. I would take a 5000.
And to think, homes have been built with 2x4's and 2x8's for a few centuries.
It's not the lumber, it's how far it's load bearing capability has been (over) pushed.
Yeah but you have 8 kiddos, some dogs, probably a few cows, and a partridge in a pear tree. My 2100' is great for the two of us. I'd like it laid out a little differently, bigger kitchen.
Two of you!!?? I've seen how those dogs lay around the house. They take up half the place!
How much did the drought help out? I'm guessing the sprinkler service biz is still driven by weather more than unemployment numbers.
Weather, yes. But when money is tight many homeowners will do without sprinklers or DIY it. However, the ones that have been insulated by the economy still call for service.
Definatly the drought helped.But also doing a lot of construction preps , pool install preps ect.
Native lumber cannot be spaced the same as milled s-p-f.
When you mention engineered lumber, people think of I-joists and glu-lam beams.
And yes, there are different span tables for native or rough-sawn versus dimension lumber for live loads.
You *can* build with native or rough sawn lumber... just have to adhere to different (shorter) spans.
