Snow Load Studies / Re: Snow Load Calculator and Maps
« on: March 07, 2020, 06:11:31 am »
Hi Nate,

I was also able to add my key to the Ground Snow Load map tool. And the location I need the information for says only "Site-specific case study (CS) required to establish ground snow load at this location."

Is that a service you offer? If not, any pointers on how I might obtain one?

In brief, I'm trying the determine the shallowest hip roof slope I can get away with for use for a small building at 343 Pine Dr, Lookout, California. Obviously I need to know the roof snow load, and for that, per your calculator, I need to know the ground snow load!

Thanks,

Forum News / Re: Setting Timezone for Members

I found it on the page you get if you go to "Profile Summary", then pull down the menu under "Modify Profile" and choose "Look and Feel". You can enter an offset there.

But one thing really puzzles me: Before I did that myself just a few minutes ago, Forum time was shown as 6:15 AM February 20th. But is that even possible? I'm in California and the local time was 2:15 PM February 20th. Logically, for the forum time to be 8 hours earlier, it would have to located 8 time zones WEST of me - but I think that's on the other side of the dateline! So at the time I was shown a forum time of 6:15 AM on February 20th, there was (I think) no place in the WORLD that had a local time of 6:15 AM on the 20th!!!

While it's not usually part of a building model (at least not residentially), if you're doing safety devices, you might want to have a few fire extinguishers available
