The 7/8 will work quite well as long as there is enough of future gloat
stuff to finish the job. As to the joist spacing, it depends upon your
local building codes. My house had to be designed to withstand an 8.0
earthquake with a 4' snow load. I have tubatens on 12" centers with
tubasix redwood decking. I thought, at the time, that it had to be an
incredible over design, but looking at the weight of three feet of wet
snow with more very wet snow coming down this morning, maybe it was OK.
Thanks for the advise, as for the gloat...I picked up a palate of 1x6 yellow
cedar 16' long maesuring 3' wide x 3' high i figure about 1400 sqft for
$350 CAD!!!!! More than enough to build anything I want. ;-)
Do you mean yellow cedar from the northwest. I could sure use a
couple of those 16' ers to make accent strips for a cedar strip canoe
I want to build. Nice score, sucks bigtime
