WCD 1 - Details for Conventional Wood Frame Construction

(formerly T11 Manual for Wood Frame Construction)
(54 pages, 1.4 MB PDF) June 2001

WCD #1 is a comprehensive summary of rules and guidelines for the proper construction of wood frame buildings built to conventional construction provisions in the model building codes. WCD #1 includes information on various types of construction, framing systems, fire and draftstopping, protection against termites and decay, fastenings, insulation, and materials, as well as a series of figures included to illustrate proper framing techniques.

Today, some building codes may require a more rigorous structural design methodology than is associated with conventional construction. This requirement may result from a need for better building performance when the structure is exposed to moderate-to-high wind, seismic, and snow loads. AWC publishes the Wood Frame Construction Manual for One- and Two-Family Dwellings to provide solutions based on engineering analysis, in accordance with recognized national codes and standards. Like conventional construction, the engineered solutions are provided in a prescriptive format.
