    We just broke ground last week. The first 6 months was the planning and BS to get things set in motion.

    Thanks

    I'm kinda suprised at the minimal uplift connections you stated

    We generally do more than that here , without the tornado threat

    We don't really design for tornadoes, per se. The design wind speed we use is 90MPH and generally translates to ~25psf uplift. Then you have 15psf dead load, so you're really just looking at 10psf net uplift (maybe 400 pounds per truss - easily handled by a small clip). Tornadoes go up to 300MPH, so I think the general consensus is, if you are unlucky enough to get hit by a tornado, a stick-frame building isn't going to hold up anyways. So we just design for heavy storm winds

    This is good to know. I know we do get at least 1 storm a year that gets 60-80 mph winds coming through. Trying to build for a storm with 200 mph winds would just cost too much, that is why we have basements.

    You should do a poured in place wall all the way up AND a poured concrete roof tied in to the walls with rebar hooks, on a light weight pan deck sitting on steel trusses.:cool:
    I designed a house like that in FL for the hurricanes back in '07. I was going to build it for myself when the market crashed. Good luck tornado, give it your best:cool:

    The only thing you would have to replace would be some windows, siding and roof shingles. Otherwise its bomb proof.

    It would cost a bit more, but man!! Solid.

    The engineer looked at me like I was a nutjob. He actually said, have you ever heard of overkill.

    Plus the roof would NEVER leak.

    I have found that Canada is always a step or three ahead of the states as far as code revisions go. As far as hurricane ties are concerned where I live every truss is required a hurricane tie regardless of the uplift value.
