Strengthen the roof from the inside without taking it all off is what DH and
I are hoping for. To take it all off would almost be starting from scratch.
Thanks for the additional suggestion, but since we just bought a cord of wood,
we are really trying to avoid adding semi-green firewood this season!!!!
GC is only suggesting the plan to County. If County bites, then engineering
will figure out if it is feasible.
I did find out that the code is for 50psf . And it applies to the entire
elevations from 3300 to 5400. As far as design loads, I still have not
found out yet what is required.
I thought I would also send you a picture of the home we live in now at 3600
elevation. It is somewhat close in mileage to our construction which is at
4300 elevation. This amount of snow was unusual for where we live now, but I
wanted to show you it does happen.
