I have about 80 Lin. Ft. of 4"x12' faux (none structural box) beams that will be totally exposed to the elements. North central Texas.
How do I weatherproof them so that moisture does not get into...

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but it really works quite well. My client is not compaining about a smoke problem.
Obviously one does not need to run the fan at maximum CFM. With the variable speed,...

Charlie. I did one a couple of years ago. 12'x20' open two sides.
Required larger hood and fan normally used for indoor kitchen.
Briefly. Had hood made at local SM shop (48"x24") with filters,...

Sounds as if this is over and above that required per code? If the number of bolts you have already installed have been inspected and meet code, why do you need to have any additional bolts...

"In my experience wealth or the proximity to it is a strong entitling factor"
Maybe this is this explains poor rednecks voting republican. Makes them feel like they are one of the rich and famous.
Thanks everyone. At least now I know that's it's not personal, like bad breath or something. :>)
m beezo. I check the site daily, but no I don't always log in. I don't shut down but maybe once a week. I always have to log in when posting and sometimes to open some post.
I just thought "Remember...
I have no idea where this should be posted but:
Can anyone tell be how I can be remembered. I really do get tired logging in all of the time. I have been a member since 2004. Makes one feel...

I doubt that you will get much help here as the site is for professionals in the building trades only.
Your statement as to getting and engineer involved is right on. You might also get an...

HVAC pro's.? Wait until you see the HVAC equipment and ducts in an unconditioned attic where the temp's can exceed 120*. Also will most likely have one central R/A per HVAC unit.
Not good, but...

The best way I can answer your question is to simply say, "yes & yes."
!!!!!Welcome to Texas!!!!

I'm sure that, for the most part, the rafter tails that you are seeing on open cornices is simply the tail of the rafter and would be the same material as the rafter.
You could cut the rafter...
Thanks Ted for you post. I agree that decks are special cases. Your statement,"If one bolt fails, etc.etc." is so true.
When calculating the number of bolts required, I kept thinking of how a...

You putting the horse before the cart and letting the tail wag the dog. You should let the truss be engineered to fit your design.
Good design is going the sell the house, not the trusses.
Man, you squeezed all of the juice out of that one. They will have to go out and buy stuff to put in it just so it won't look empty.
The only negative comment, and it is simply a personal...
What uniform loads are you taking about? Is the beam for floor, roof or what? Live loads? Dead loads? Are there snow loads involved?
Don't understand, "It will be supported/braced along the entire...

Pardon the interruption.
I posted something similar a while back. This was an engineered foundation. In this case the 10" stem wall was only reduced by a 3"Hx5"W brick ledge leaving a 3"Hx5"W stem...
I can't help with your tech. request, but is good to see you smiling face, as it were. over here again.
Sorry. I've been doing sketches in this business for almost 60 yrs.,but I do mine with P&P. So lets try a thousand words.
Width of deck is 12'-0". Span from the ledger to the support beam is...
I have tried to find out how the load of a hot tub is distributed, but all of the hot tub sites are nothing but promotional. No tech. info.
Can anyone tell me how the load of a hot tub is...

Assuming I understand your question:
Unless your roof framing is of truss construction, you most likely have interior walls that are load bearing. Looking up in the attic, you should see bracing...

You are going to be hard pressed to ever get a fit that will give you much weather protection. Out swinging doors are inherently difficult to weatherproof anyway if not covered/protected.

Mike, I don't know of any publication, but your post prompted me to go outside and look at the trim on my 84 year old house.
As best I can tell, the crown on the rake is the same as the eave. ...

Good grief Charlie Brown. If you guys would just read my post more carefully, you would see that I covered all of that stuff you are rambling on about.
I very distinctly and succinctly stated, and...

The subject was about POST, not beams. It's possible that a laminated post could be stronger than a solid post. True, there may be other considerations to take into account.
