Previous Questions and Answers
Q:Hello, Can you build this on the CA Sierra's and does the plan include information for snow loads and seismic activity? Thank you
A:Yes! It’s designed to meet IRC codes. The roof is designed for 50lb snow loads. You will need a local professional to ensure it meets your local seismic needs.

Q:How large are the roof overhangs? They look to be about 30".
A:They are 36” and can be set at your preference in the field
Date Posted: 15-Jan-21
Q:Can the snow load be increased to 100 lbs sq ft? Is that simply a matter of increasing the size of the rafters and decreasing the spacing between them? And maybe increasing the size of the walls where the beams go to distribute the weight?
A:You can go to 100lbs by increasing the rafter size. The wall size should not need to change, but you may need to resize some window headers. Your local lumberyard can help with that.

Q:Hi I'm interested on this model plan, is there an option for a fireplace? If yes, where would it be the location or possible locations?
A:We do not have the plan with a fireplace, but it could go anywhere you want. I suggest a wood burning stove, as it will require the least amount of space. With it you really wouldn’t need us to make modifications. Just install in the field.

A:The garage areas are the same size, just called out differently on the website. Yes the loft is in both plans.
