AT LAST! Design, construction and UBC requirements combined in one building system. Tired of books that treat wood design and construction methods as separate theoretical subjects, failing to weave them together like they are in the real world? Design and Construction of Wood Framed Buildings, by Morton Newman, not only bridges this gap, it also cites UBC requirements and constraints every step of the way. Each phase of design and construction is illustrated by one of 350 AutoCAD-generated details or explained with an example calculation. Detail drawings also interpret the intent of the Uniform Building Code. And you'll find all the information organized in the same progression in which you work - general requirements, building design loads, design examples and assembly techniques.
