Wood Post Blocking Between Floor Framing

Creating a continuous load path is a fundamental principle of structural engineering. In steel construction, steel columns are often spliced in the field to be continuous for the entire height of the building. In platform wood-framed construction, we must consider not only the posts for transferring discrete vertical loads, but also how the posts’ loads… Read More »

Engineered Wood I-Joists as Tension Members

Engineering wood I-joists (TJI, BCI, AJS, etc…) are a popular choice for floor framing members in wood-frame construction, and we like them for the same reason others do: they are very efficient structural members, meaning they carry a lot of loads compared to their own weight. And since they are made from engineered wood products,… Read More »
