Rebuilding on the Gulf Coast

Panel edges were relieved at the bottom to fit over the glulam rim joist, and at the sides and top for the 2-by connecting splines.

The wall panels were first glued and nailed to the glulam band and splines, then fastened to each other and to existing framing with structural screws.

To prevent wind deflection, the tall window walls were reinforced with full-length flitch beam stiffeners.

The stiffeners were bolted to the glulam and recessed into the wall panels.

Preinstalled 2-by walk boards reinforced the connection between the lifting hooks and the OSB skins of the roof panels.
