Re: shear wall material


So far we have no location, no pictures or even a drawing so anyone's just going to be able to guess what code calls for.
No permit pulled for this job!

Re: shear wall material


No permit and inspections?
No location in your profile so not sure how anyone would know what your local codes are.
Pictures or at least a drawing may help.
