    I'm on my computer now and can actually see the pics better

    are the anchors in the walls ( besides the ones by the garage door ) straps ?

    why are the bolts so far out of the concrete , is there tie down hardware going in these locations or is it a local code requirement ?

    Yes, that is the over sized garage :D

    You are correct, we worry about tornadoes, not earthquakes.

    My parents have built 5 houses. I've been around to help with 4 of them. I wasn't involved to near the depth I am now, but I have a good idea of the process. This house is somewhat of a compromise for me. I wanted to take it much further with the amount of work I do, but I don't have the time.

    I've got some somewhere. I'll get them put up eventually.

    Yes, the anchors in the walls are straps. I'm not sure about the bolts. I would assume alot of it has to do with our code because of tornadoes.

    We are in Iowa. I welcome the thoughts. It's always interesting to get the ideas from different parts of the country.

    Nope, don't care if you talk in here.

    Do you need to do constant load path hold downs for wind uplift / tornadoes ?

    5-6 months depending on the weather.

    Yep, Iowa is so much nicer than Cali. I love some of the stuff to do in Cali, but i can't fucking stand 99% of the people.

    Coming soon!
    Definitely need a constant load path from roof trusses to wall (clips) and wall to the foundation. 48" anchor bolt spacing for the bases is pretty common for what we do here in Indiana and Iowa has the same wind design speeds as us. A lot of times though, based on code uplift, the dead load of the roof will offset the majority of that uplift and not many truss clips or base anchors are needed (hence the seemingly large 4' spacing)


    Congrats on building the house OP! Just moved into my newly built house in June. Very excited stuff. I'm surprised you're 6 months in though and still have six months left. The whole process took me 5-6 months total
